  • Stunningly pro jazz performance by 4 vets; young and mature. Sensitive playing and listening all around with lots of flow changes in solos. Center sounded great as always.
  • This place is very narrow and deep. I tend to find the sound levels are a little loud at the front of the mezzanine. Berklee brings in great talent, of course, so the shows are great. There are a number of relatively convenient parking options nearby.
