This concert series, curated by celebrated local jazz musician and composer Ken Field and John Bechard of Journeys in Sound takes place in the Museum's Main Gallery, the last boiler house of the Boston Manufacturing Company. The BMC was the United States' first integrated factory, where the American Industrial Revolution took flight. The Boiler House is where they generated steam, first to turn overhead line shaft systems, then to spin dynamos for electricity, and finally to heat the place.
The Boiler House Jazz Series has been created to demonstrate the wide stylistic and geographic diversity of that most American art form, and to present jazz that is a bit different from what many people imagine when they think of "jazz."
Each is a Thursday evening, with the performances beginning at 8 pm, with doors opening 30 minutes prior.
