The Magic Triangle Jazz Series presents improvised music across a broad range of styles and traditions, in intimate venues at an affordable price. Over the past 30 years, we have presented artists at all stages of their careers, including some of the most celebrated musicians in jazz history: Andrew Hill, Lester Bowie, Sam Rivers, Milford Graves, Yusef Lateef, Roscoe Mitchell, Von Freeman, Anthony Braxton, Cecil Taylor and Randy Weston. We have also presented younger artists like Vijay Iyer, Mary Halvorson, Amir ElSaffar, Joshua Abrams, Rudresh Mahanthappa and Tyshawn Sorey, who are charting new directions in jazz. All of the hundreds of fabulous musicians we have brought to the University of Massachusetts have had something profound to say and made lasting impacts on creative music. The 30th anniversary of the Magic Triangle Jazz Series is as good a time as any to celebrate this American contribution to world culture.
