In a career that spans five decades and includes collaborations with some of the most iconic figures in modern jazz, NEA Jazz Master and Grammy-winner Jack DeJohnette has established an unchallenged reputation as one of the greatest drummers in the history of the genre. The Jack DeJohnette Trio represents the prestigious lineage of today’s great jazz families with saxophonist Ravi Coltrane and bassist Matt Garrison and explores open improvisation, as well as their own compositions. According to the Los Angeles Times, "Jack DeJohnette generally is regarded as one of the finest living jazz drummers, a limber musical thinker and technical dynamo, one who challenges tradition by pushing outward while digging in.”

The Bad Plus Joshua Redman

As though it was always destined to be, powerhouse trio the Bad Plus finds its fated fourth member in longtime friend and collaborator, saxophonist Joshua Redman. When Redman joined the trio as a special guest a few years back, a brilliant collaboration was born. Redman’s melodic prowess blends seamlessly with the avant-garde populism of Reid Anderson, Ethan Iverson, and David King, pushing the boundaries of jazz beyond all imagination. Metroland describes the supergroup best: “It’s as though Redman is the long-lost fourth member of the group, just waiting to be snapped snugly into place. Imagine if the Beatles had spent the first decade of their career as a trio before adding Paul. It’s like that.”

Recognized as South Africa’s foremost jazz pianist, Abdullah Ibrahim has a unique and dynamic compositional approach that successfully fuses universal and often seemingly disparate styles. Subtle hints of bright, traditional African melodies, gospel-inflected harmonies, and regal Ellingtonian progressions pervade his music, while his skill as a pianist leaves listeners in awe.

The Berklee Silent Film Orchestra

The Phantom of the Opera (1925), directed by Rupert Julian, is widely considered one of the most important silent films of all time. The film features the legendary Lon Chaney, "the man of a thousand faces," in a bravura turn as the tortured and disfigured Erik, which prefigured several subsequent film and stage performances of the character.

Lauded as "highly accomplished" by the Wall Street Journal and "amazing" by film industry bible Indiewire, the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra is dedicated to composing new, original scores for silent feature film classics and performing them live-to-picture. Based at Boston's Berklee College of Music, home to the world's only undergraduate degree program in film scoring, this student orchestra composes new works and performs as an ensemble under the leadership of three-time Emmy nominee Sheldon Mirowitz (Outside Providence, Missing In America), a Berklee professor of film scoring.

The Nantucket Film Festival (NFF) was founded by brother and sister team Jill and Jonathan Burkhart in 1996 to promote the cultural awareness and appreciation of the fine art of screenwriting in the world of cinema. These days, the NFF has become one of the premier destination film festivals in the world.
