Courtyard Series: Berklee at the Regattabar with Creative Music Front
August 22, 2011
Courtyard Series: Berklee at the Regattabar features alumni and student artists performing a variety of jazz styles, including progressive, vocal, improvisational, Latin, and contemporary. The series continues every Monday through August 29. The concerts take place in the Upper Courtyard at the Charles Hotel.
The Creative Music Front (CMF) is an international collective born within the Berklee community. The artists, all from different continents and cultural backgrounds, create music that combines jazz, funk, Latin rhythms, European harmonies, and Asian influences. The group’s repertoire is primarily original compositions, and also includes a few jazz standards revisited. In 2010, the CMF toured in Mexico. This summer, the group undertakes a three-week tour of Italy. CMF member Leonardo Radicchi appears on Octave, the latest CD by Jazz Revelation Records, with an original composition.
