Boston’s ‘Jazz Heroes’ to be Honored at November Concert
They are the unsung heroes of Boston’s jazz scene. For decades, radio personalities Steve Schwartz and Eric Jackson, and presenter/promoter Fred Taylor, have been tireless advocates for the music and its artists—Schwartz and Jackson on WGBH-FM, and Taylor at the old Boston Jazz Workshop and currently at Scullers Jazz Club and the Tanglewood Jazz Festival.The Office for the Arts and Harvard Jazz Bands will pay tribute to them in November with a concert featuring music by Boston-based composers Jaki Byard, Jimmy Giuffre and Phil Wilson, plus a public conversation on the future of the music and a collaboration with Harvard’s radio station WHRB.

Friday, November 2 at 8 pm
Concert featuring the Harvard Jazz Bands and special guests.
