BBEBB: Not Your Ordinary Summertime
The Big Bang Evolutionary Big Band (BBEBB) has evolved from the desire of many talented jazz composer/instrumentalists from the Berklee community to initiate a forum that allows for the sharing of musical ideas, stimulating the creative process and fostering the creation of new music. This collective is composed of faculty members, staff members, alumni, and students who all share a vision of the ever-evolving world of jazz music, the positive opportunities provided by working within the jazz orchestra setting and the importance of the role played by the jazz orchestra in this music's evolution.
The BBEBB offers open rehearsal sessions and live performances of its resident and guest composers' music. Through these sessions and performances composer/writers and audience members can share in the guided and organic artistic process of creating and performing challenging new music.
