Berklee College of Music and the City of Boston Parks and Recreation DepartmentJazz at the Fort
This year’s annual Jazz at the Fort concert features Berklee Voice Department assistant chair and jazz vocalist Diane Richardson with friends. Richardson’s melodies and lyrics radiate honesty and warmth. Her performance style includes a nod to jazz traditionalists with an appreciation of such cerebral composers as Charles Mingus, Abbey Lincoln, Wayne Shorter, and many others. Her work with pianist Jiri Nedoma, drummer Yoron Israel, bassist John Lockwood, saxophonist Lance Bryant, and percussionist Ricardo Monzon offers the listener a perfect blend of vocal texture and instrumental generosity.
Jazz at the Fort is a free annual concert held in Roxbury. This year’s concert will be held at Marcella Park, but in the event of rain the concert will be held at the Mainstage Theater in the Media Arts Center at Roxbury Community College.
