Berklee’s Global Jazz Summit For Humanity And Peace couldn’t come at a better time, what with the US embroiled in — count them — three wars overseas. The three-day summit celebrates everything the Global Jazz Institute is all about: interconnected learning, creativity, and experiencing life beyond the talented musicianship of its students. A few things our global community could take cues from. Tonight’s concert starring Wayne Shorter, widely regarded as the genre’s greatest living composer, kicks off the festivities.
