Sounds of Berklee: A Bite of BeanTown with Conrad Herwig | Episode 3: September 2007
Sounds of Berklee will have a Spanish flavor this month. The new track comes from Conrad Herwig's Sketches of Spain Y Mas, a collection of the trombonist's Latin jazz arrangements of classic Miles Davis compositions.
When you listen to Herwig's arrangement of "Seven Steps to Heaven," you'll be getting just a taste of the BeanTown Jazz Festival's free outdoor concert this Saturday. The afternoon of music presents some of jazz's best artists—Herwig, Mike Stern, Claudia Acuña, and Charles Tolliver, to name a few—on three stages in Boston's historic South End. Come any time between noon and 6 p.m. and be a part of one of Boston's biggest annual music events—last year's festival attracted 60,000 people.
And if you move fast, you might still be able to get tickets to Friday night's opening concert—A Celebration of Jazz and Joyce—boasting an extraordinary lineup of jazz greats, including Herbie Hancock, Michel Camilo, Geri Allen, and Joe Lovano.
Subscribers to Sounds of Berklee get a free track each month recorded by a Berklee-related artist. It's a great way to learn about where music is headed.
