Pomeroy Scholarship Concert

Here’s a calendar item for those in, or planning to be in Boston on April 1.

Pomeroy, trumpeter, arranger, and Berklee teacher for four decades, died last August. Among the school’s alumni whose compositions and arrangements will be played by the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra are Alan Broadbent, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Michael Gibbs and the longtime Berklee teacher John LaPorta.

    Herb was a national treasure and I’m so glad this concert is being produced in his memory. If you would like to hear a 1/2 hour radio documentary that I produced called, “Herb Pomeroy, A Jazz Portrait” simply log on to:
    http://www.wgbh.org/jazz
    Look for “Jazz Portraits” and the picture of Yusef Lateef and click there. It will take you to Herb’s feature (as well as others on Yusef, Jimmy Giuffre, Alan Dawson, Archie Shepp, Jackie McLean, etc). It’s Herb in his own voice talking about his career in music and education, accompanied by the music he made and/or listened to. Enjoy!
