    John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Dizzy Gillespie played there, and so did Bruce Springstein, Billy Joel, and Earth, Wind & Fire when they were starting their careers.

    Taylor ran the clubs until 1978, then went on to produce concerts in Boston Symphony Hall and the Boston Garden, working with Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, and others.

    In 1991, Taylor began working at Scullers Jazz Club at the Doubletree Hotel in Allston, and turned it into one of the top 10 jazz clubs in America. From 2001 to 2007, he was the artistic director for the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, and today is the entertainment director of Scullers Jazz Club, and a board member of JazzBoston. 

    The Masters Speak Series is a collection of interactive, exclusive interviews led by jazz radio legend Steve Schwartz. Boston-based radio host Schwartz will interview Street. Born and raised in Boston, Schwartz has spent over 20 years in radio, most notably at WGBH, until 2012. Schwartz has interviewed George Garzone and Dave Liebman as part of the Masters Speak Series.

    CANCELED: Sinkane / Helado Negro
    CANCELED: Please contact the box office for information on refunds.

    [details]
    CANCELED: Please contact the box office for information on refunds.

    Sinkane (Ahmed Gallab) and his family left Sudan when he was a boy, emigrating to the U.S. While in high school in Kent, Ohio, he found a musical community in the town’s thriving post-hardcore scene. He became the touring drummer for Caribou in 2008, then toured with Of Montreal before moving to New York City. Soon, he joined Yeasayer and toured the world with them. The name Sinkane comes from a verson Kanye West’s “Never Let Me Down.” A formidable player on guitar, bass, keys and drums, Gallab is a one-man band, playing at least four instruments on every track on Mars. The influence of ‘70s soul icons like Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, and Stevie Wonder can be heard on this album; also Sudan.

    The son of Ecuadorian immigrants, Helado Negro was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida. Pounding bass beats from passing cars, boom boxes bouncing down the block, and late-night parties called “peñas” provided a foundation for Helado Negro’s interest in sound and quest to discover the unlimited variety of objects used to produce music. Most recently he created a new collaborative group with Julianna Barwick called OMBRE, releasing a debut album in 2012 called Believe You Me. Helado Negro has worked with Bear in Heaven mixing Beast Rest Forth Mouth. He also produced Prefuse 73‘s 2010 album, Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian. Other projects include Epstein, Helado Negro’s “beats and loops” effort, which includes a series of digital releases, full-lengths, and a remix album—gauzy, sunny dance music that references DJ mixing, block parties, and mellow compositional noise.

    Night Lights

    Night Lights brings together an eclectic assortment of indie, rock, and soul-influenced sounds to make people dance and feel feelings. Great Caesar will open the show, and Oh, Malô will also play. 

    [details]

    With members from Mexico, Texas, Japan, California, and Norway, Night Lights brings together an eclectic assortment of indie, rock, and soul-influenced sounds to make people dance and feel feelings.

    The Boston-based band met in 2012 and has since discovered a balance between profound lyrics, hooky melodies, danceable music, and intriguing harmonic progressions. Its songs touch on the subject of existentialism and the confrontation of the self, hoping to discover a truth grounded in music, community, and conversation. Drew's warped soundscapes, Yusuke's intricate riffs, Jeff's melodic bass lines, Dag's colorful rhythmic creations, and Mau's captivating melodies and otherworldly voice effects all come together to take you on an unparalleled audio adventure.

    Great Caesar aims for the heart with a vulnerable blend of brass, voice, and indie-rock, drawing from acts like Arcade Fire and Beirut to create music that confronts the things that really matter: love, legacy, and the complexity of human relationships. The New York City band’s 2014 debut phenomenon, "Don’t Ask Me Why," combines art and activism in a video that juxtaposes the civil rights movement of the 1960s with today’s fight for sexual equality. Supported by figures as varied as Russell Simmons, Deepak Chopra, Arsenio Hall, and Superbowl champion and LGBT advocate Brendon Ayanbadejo, the video has already challenged hundreds of thousands to take a stand for love and equality.

    "Don’t Ask Me Why" is available now via all major digital outlets, and will appear on CD and vinyl as part of a forthcoming EP produced by Griffin Rodriguez (Beirut, Modest Mouse, A Hawk and a Hacksaw).

    Oh, Malô (Oh-muh-low) presents colorful soundscapes through an eclectic sound, inspired by a series of emotions and experiences. Founded last February, the band reached immediate chemistry and completed a debut album in three months. Oh, Malô pulls influence from such bands as Bombay Bicycle Club, Radiohead, Local Natives, Daughter, and Jeff Buckley to create a consistently unpredictable blend of timbres and arrangements. They spent the summer recording and refining these songs in anticipation of an exciting end to 2014.

    [details]

    Liang Long, singer and band leader of Second Hand Rose, experimented with blending local instruments from Harbin, a city in far northeast China near Siberia. He has woven these performance styles into his music. Armed with a new sound, he travelled to Beijing, where suona (a wind instrument) player Wu Zekun helped him develop a unique blend of rock and Chinese traditions. The pair joined an underground music scene just beginning to develop around small clubs and artist communities, and eventually filled out the lineup to its current six-piece. The name Second Hand Rose derives from the notion that rock in China is a secondhand and imported endeavor—as such the band's song "Leading a Dabbling Life" devolves into a Chinese sing-along version of Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal. The musicians themselves cite godfather of Chinese rock Cui Jian, Pink Floyd, and Hong Kong and Taiwanese pop acts like Beyond and Luo Dayou as influences. This October, the band will appear at the Modern Sky Festival in Central Park, followed by a tour of the American northeast, with stops in New York, Boston, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia.

    Raised in an eclectic and musical household, Natalie Cressman has diversified and expanded her musical universe. This trombonist, vocalist, and composer has assimilated the full range of her sonic influences into a mature, original voice that melds the sophistication of modern jazz with captivating storytelling and intoxicating melodies reminiscent of indie rock's most distinctive songwriters. From Carnegie Hall to the House of Blues, from the Apollo to Lincoln Center, her versatility and enthusiasm for new music has propelled her into a richly diverse musical career. Cressman has spent much of the last four years touring the jam band circuit with Phish's Trey Anastasio, while also performing with jazz luminaries Nicholas Payton, Wycliffe Gordon, and Peter Apfelbaum. Those varied experiences are reflected on her gorgeous second release, Turn the Sea. Cressman switched coasts in 2009 to study at the Manhattan School of Music, and the following year was enlisted by jam band pioneer Trey Anastasio for his touring band.

    On August 10th 2012, Paige Chaplin released her self-produced debut record, He Has Gone, Said Her Heart. This release and the general success of the record propelled her into the music scene in Boston and around Berklee College of Music, where she studied Professional Music and Voice for two years. Still These Bones is a departure from her first record, although the essence remains. Most of the songs have more instrumentation and melodic depth than before.

She signed with Capitol in 2005 and Epic/Sony in 2008, completing a full-length recording with producer Greg Wells. She has also built a following in the independent market. Her Skipping Stone EP came about when a Kickstarter campaign enabled her to raise $67,000, allowing her to tour 17 cities with her band across the US and Canada.

    [details]

    Animal Flag is the solo-project of 20-year-old singer-songwriter and producer Matthew Politoski. Matthew is from Westtown, N.Y. and is studying Contemporary Writing & Production at Berklee College of Music. He blends elements of folk, electronic, and indie rock. and since 2007 has self-released numerous albums and EPs with Animal Flag.

    Jesse Denaro adapts a DIY approach to his music, writing all of his own songs and playing all the parts, save for a bit of electric guitar, for his studio recordings. He does draw from the collaboration of some close friends on the arrangements but otherwise holds his song tight to his chest. Additionally, he dives into the background of the work, engaging in the engineering and mixing and mastering of his songs, not to mention the design work. 

    Based in Boston,  I/Ø has been playing together since fall of 2012. Drawing heavy influence from bands like Explosions In The Sky, Sigur Ros, and Hammock, I/Ø finished their first instrumental full-length album over the summer of 2013. Based on open textures, nuanced melody, and heavy artillery dynamic, the I/Ø sound allows the audience to form their own subjective aesthetic intention for the music, free from the confines of language and clarity. The songwriting process is organic, similar to the ebb and flow of the emotional states that fuel the final product, difficult to observe and often impossible to define. I/Ø believes human experience can be too beautiful and grotesque, inspiring and abhorrent, heartwarming and traumatic, to put into words.

    Animal Flag will also have support from the Sulk Scouts

    In an evening of folk-rock, pop, and R&B, Cordelia & the Buffalo, Andrea Charls, and Mike Caprarola deliver emotionally resonant performances.

    [details]

    The story of Cordelia & the Buffalo begins with Cordelia, a Mexican/American musician, singer, songwriter, and producer who draws inspiration from the Mexican Indian and Native American cultures. In 2011, she set out to find the perfect combination of musicians to give life to a fresh sound. Singing and playing keyboards and synthesizers, she became the founder of a band with Berklee College of Music students Yusuke Sato (guitar), Dag Hanken (synthesizers/percussion), Rodrigo Gramitto (guitar), Diego Diaz (drums), and Daniel McCallum (bass). The band’s vibrant sound developed from a fusion of explosive beats, exotic instruments, powerful lyrics and soothing melodies, incorporating influences from band members hailing from Alaska, Japan, Mexico, Norway, and Venezuela. Together, these members forged the soul of an indie rock/electronic sound and the Buffalo was born.

    Andrea Charls was born in Limassol on the island of Cyprus. She graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2013.

The session is open to all Berklee students, but the pitches will feature songs from a select group of Berklee songwriters. This is a great chance to learn how to pitch a song, how to make a demo that wins a pitch, and what A&R and publishers want —and do not want— in songs for hit recording artists.

    Irish-born singer Lisa O'Neill's unrushed, naturalistic, straight-talking approach and witty lyrics have made her a new favorite on Dublin's folk and traditional music scene.

    [details]

    Lisa O’Neill started writing songs and music at an early age in her native Ballyhaise, a village in Ireland’s County Cavan. She moved to Dublin at age 18 to study music full time. Early on, she was welcomed into the folk and traditional scene in pubs and venues around the city, where her singular voice, witty lyrics, and observations on modern Irish life gained her popularity and set her apart as a unique talent.

    Her independently released debut album, aptly titled Has an Album, was launched in August 2009 and sold out throughout the country, displaying her popularity not just in Dublin but nationwide. Her second album, Same Cloth or Not, showcases her unrushed, naturalistic, straight-talking approach. O’Neill is like a musical version of Flannery O’Connor.

    Watch a video preview for O’Neill’s new album:

    London-based singer-songwriter Lewis Watson got his start in music while still a teenager by quietly uploading cover versions of his favorite songs to a sleepy YouTube account in 2010. With an acoustic guitar and a booming, soulful voice, he began uploading original compositions to great response. Before long, he was playing in support of larger acts and releasing a series of EPs.

    By 2012, the buzz was enough to bring several record labels knocking on his door, and he eventually entered into a contract with Warner Bros., which came with festival performances, Billboard chart appearances, and an ever-growing fan base. Watson has collaborated with Arctic MonkeysFlorence and the Machine, and some top songwriters and producers, including Richard Wilkinson (Kaiser Chiefs) and Mr Hudson.

    Watson has now released his debut full-length album, The Morning, which also comes in a deluxe edition that contains every song he has ever released.

    [details]

    Atlanta-based sisters, Larkin Poe, celebrate their familial bond and their own eccentricities with their debut full-length album, Kin, on Restoration Hardware's label RH Music. The record was produced by Chris Seefried (Fitz and the Tantrums, Lana Del Rey) in Los Angeles and Damien Lewis (Rihanna, Rita Ora) in Atlanta.

    The sisters grew up playing classical violin and piano, while at the same time, listening to their dad playing classic rock albums such as: Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, The Band. Larkin Poe's  sound and voices came together for another reason as well: for the first time, they actually wrote together. After years of being fiercely independent (e.g., they self-released five EPs and toured for three years without label support), they decided to sign with RH Music. With years of domestic and international touring under their belts, and a large and loyal fan base, the sisters want their fans to know that Kin is truly their coming of age project. 

    Indulge yourself in the sweet sounds of Larkin Poe's album teaser of kin here:

    Saxophonist and composer Uri Gurvich was named Jazz Player of the Year in his native Israel before relocating to the U.S. to study at Berklee under Joe Lovano. Now based in New York, Gurvich won great acclaim as a bandleader with his debut The Storyteller (Tzadik), featuring some of the most prominent voices on the contemporary jazz scene: Leo Genovese, Peter Slavov, Francisco Mela and special guest Chris Cheek. All Music Guide called Gurvich “a major new voice in jazz.”

    His second album, BabEl, features his quartet and Moroccan multi-instrumentalist Brahim Fribgane on oud and percussion. The Los Angeles Times wrote that the music “transcends borders,” placing Israeli, Yemenite, East European and North African music into a progressive jazz context. Gurvich will release his third Tzadik project, an interpretation of John Zorn’s Book of Angels, in 2015.

    Ryan Bingham is an Oscar-winning singer-songwriter who was born in New Mexico but raised all across the Southwestern United States. Bingham set out on his own at a young age, shuffling from town to town and performing gigs at local no-frills bars. It’s this spirit of having done plenty of living early on that has informed the singer-songwriter’s jagged and weather-beaten vocals.

    Bingham’s critically acclaimed debut album, Mescalito, won kudos from media outlets as varied as Rolling Stone, Esquire, and The Washington Post. His sophomore effort, Roadhouse Sun, solidified his reputation as a serious artist.

    In 2010, Bingham’s song “The Weary Kind, which appeared on the soundtrack to the film Crazy Heart, earned him a Grammy, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and the Americana Artist of the Year Award. The song also led to his collaboration with T Bone Burnett, who produced his third studio album, Junky Star, which drew critical acclaim. Bingham’s songwriting abilities shine on songs that seem poised to continue acing the test of time.

    [details]

    Mirel Wagner's songs are like a smooth, polished pebbles thrown into a bottomless pond, drops of life that set the darkness rippling. Her acoustic balladry is as far as you’ll get from clichéd coffee house folk, having more to do with the primeval darkness of Swans than the folksy bonhomie of Bob Dylan. Her background couldn’t be more normal: a relatively sheltered childhood in the suburbs of Helsinki. Her self-titled debut is still causing ripples today. Its nine songs distill the very essence of darkness, the hollowed-out bones of the blues. They seem ancient, worn, and frank in their brutal honesty. When the Cellar Children See the Light of Day is uniform and cohesive set of songs. Wagner wrote most of these songs in a log cabin on the peninsula of Hailuoto in northern Finland. It traces the melody absentmindedly, like you’d trace the outline of the back of a sleeping lover, humming as it ambles along. At times playful, at other times chillingly emotionless, Wagner is difficult to pin down. Her vocals are louder than ever on this new record, with the whisper of yesteryear drawing each breath.

    Enjoy Wagner's official video of Oak Tree from her upcoming album When The Cellar Children See the Light of Day here:
