Another Great JazzNOW Concert Knocks It Out of the Park!

The second JazzNOW concert, “Awakening, with Dream Alliance,” featured Kenny Werner, Marco Pignataro, Nadia Washington, & Devon Gates on Friday 6/25 in a stunning evening of music and spoken word, conceived and directed by Marco Pignataro.  The extraordinary free concert, co-presented by JazzBoston and GBH Music, streamed live to a worldwide audience from GBH’s beautiful Fraser Performance Studio.  Hosted by Eric Jackson, the concert was supported by the Mass Cultural Council & BioMed Realty.  If you missed it, you can (and absolutely should!!) watch the entire concert at an eye out for the next JazzNOW concert, tentatively scheduled for Friday, September 24th.

Boston Jazz History Blog:

The Rum-Saturated Silver Dollar Bar

Boston jazz historian Richard Vacca’s Boston Jazz Chronicles is an amazing and valuable resource.  We encourage jazz musicians and fans to check it out.

In addition, Vacca maintains a beautifully researched blog with regular features about noted people & places that helped shape the Boston-area jazz scene.  The current entry is about the long history of  the Silver Dollar Bar, in Boston’s Combat Zone.  Read about it here.
