Berklee Scholarship Sextet on WBGO-FM

So, the guys who are playing live at the Blue Note tonight, the Berklee Scholarship Sextet, are in a tradition of great players who have honed their art in Boston, and then brought their ideas to NYC.  They’re here with their professor and mentor, trumpeter Darren Barrett, himself a Berklee and Monk Institute alumnus, and winner of the Monk Institute Trumpet Competition.  At midday, we go to WBGO-FM, the NY area’s primo jazz station, where they’ll perform live on the air, for an hour.  We’re staying in Midtown, so we’re away in a hired bus to Newark, where the station is perched.
