The New World Jazz Composers Octet

Organized more than 11 years ago by Berklee associate professor of harmony Daniel Ian Smith, the New World Jazz Composers Octet began as an aggregation dedicated to the performance of new music. The group garnered considerable attention after its first performance and word spread that this world-class ensemble was truly one of a kind. The ensemble quickly adapts to and personalizes the compositions that are written expressly for it. This type of ensemble is a dream come true for contemporary composers as opportunities for performances of new music are often few and far between.
