The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ranked this year's Jazz Seminar Concert one of the year's best jazz events in its annual "Best of…" issue. According to the P-G,

The Department of Music’s History of Jazz course has been selected “Best Class” by readers of The Pitt News in the campus paper’s annual “Best of…” issue.

The 43rd Annual Pitt Jazz Seminar and Concert — under the direction of Geri Allen — was amazing this year! It was made even more special by being a tribute to event founder Nathan Davis.  You can still own a piece of this historic event by purchasing a Pitt Jazz Seminar and Concert T-shirt.

The 43rd Annual Jazz Seminar culminates on Saturday night when Geri Allen leads an all-star lineup  at Carnegie Music Hall. The Pittsburgh City Paper recently ran a profile of Allen and the Jazz Seminar. In the interview, Allen recounts her time at Pitt, being mentored by Nathan Davis, and what makes the Jazz Seminar and Concert unique.
