Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival Berklee Global Jazz Institute Ensemble
In honor of the 10th anniversary of the Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival, WGBH-FM is broadcasting a live recording of a Guest Street Session featuring the Berklee Global Jazz Institute Ensemble.
The band, including some of Berklee's top jazz students, represents more than a dozen countries, as well as multiple musical traditions and genres. Berklee Global Jazz Institute artistic director Danilo Pérez makes a rare appearance performing with the group, and offers a jaw-dropping solo improvisation.
Hosted by Jazz on WGBH's Steve Schwartz, the broadcast, recorded in WGBH's Fraser Performance Studio, may be heard at 89.7 FM and at wgbh.org.
