Valerie Simpson

Trouble Man is a play with music and dance about the artistry of Marvin Gaye. Scripted by Berklee students, the production features guest songwriting legend Valerie Simpson (Ashford & Simpson), who will sing her anthem "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" as part of the two performances.

One of Motown's leading male singers who went on to create his unforgettable What's Going On album, Gaye had it all: looks, smarts, and an irresistible voice. Yet, his life was filled with struggle and turmoil. Marvin Gaye sang honestly about his life and the world around him. Trouble Man is directed by Rebecca Perricone. Music ensemble direction is by Terri Lyne Carrington.

First Night Boston, Berklee College of Music, and 89.7 WGBH present the first reunion show of jazz guitar master John Scofield with his legendary Überjam at the Berklee Performance Center. The concert will be kicking off NPR's annual worldwide jazz broadcast of Toast of the Nation and is a centerpiece of this year's First Night Boston festival.

In 2013 this legendary band will reunite both on the road and in the studio. This group pioneered Scofield’s fusing of jazz, funk, and electronic music to become one of the defining bands of his career. The original Überjam record was released in 2002, with Up All Night the following year—recordings that documented Scofield’s fruitful collaboration with guitarist/computer manipulator Avi Bortnick, drummer Adam Deitch, and bassist Andy Hess. The group will be joined in the studio this winter by drummers Louis Cato and Adam Deitch for a release due out in May on Emarcy/Universal, before hitting the road for the remainder of 2013. The superstar guitarist is a 1973 alumnus of Berklee. This performance, a partnership between First Night, Berklee College of Music, and 89.7 WGBH, will be broadcast live in Boston on 89.7 and on stations across the country as part of NPR’s annual New Year’s Eve broadcast Toast of the Nation.

Listen to Scofield's Überjam perform from a 2006 concert in the Sounds of Berklee podcast.

9:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. - John Scofield's Uberjam (NPR Toast of the Nation broadcast)
