Jazz at the MFA

Absolutely fantastic concert Thursday evening in the MFA courtyard by George W. Russell Jr. and his band. The music ranged from Ellington and Coltrane to Russell’s own compositions and showed impressive range and depth. The musicians were all first-rate; bassist Wes Wirth was particularly impressive. All except Wirth are on the faculty at the Berklee Colege of Music. And what a great venue for music.
