Ken Schaphorst (Andrew Hurlbut/NEC)

Hear WGBH Jazz Host Eric Jackson talk with Ken Schaphorst, Chair of Jazz Studies and Improvisation Department at the New England Conservatory of Music, and NEC alumnae Ayn Inserto, now teaching Jazz at Berklee School of Music.

They discuss NEC's longlasting Jazz program and a recent tribute to the late Bob Brookmeyer, longtime Jazz teacher at NEC who had a profound impact on the language of Jazz and on the musicians who performed and composed under his tutelage there. A recording of that concert is available for download at the NEC website.
