    The Jazz Urbane, the Berklee-based group established by the college’s Africana Studies leader Bill Banfield, premieres its latest work, Playing with Other People’s Heads, at Scullers Jazz Club on March 12 at 8:00 p.m. with special guest Tia Fuller. The Jazz Urbane, an evolving group of artists comprised of Berklee students, faculty, and alumni, explores the relationship between mentors and mentees through musical collaboration. Playing with Other People’s Heads brings this theme into the spotlight with both the interplay between the multi-generational group members, as well as Grammy Award-winner George Duke’s role as executive producer. Duke mentored Banfield and the Jazz Urbane throughout the album’s creation until his death in 2013. Playing with Other People’s Heads features over 30 Berklee faculty, students, and alumni and took seven years to complete. As one of the largest Berklee cross-generational projects, the album features artists like Terri Lyne Carrington, Christian Scott, Greg Osby, and Grace Kelly.
