Concerts and broadcasts will begin at 8:00 p.m. ET. Tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 with a Berklee ID, and are available at cafe939.com or by calling 617 747-2261. The Red Room at Cafe 939 is located at 939 Boylston Street, Boston, MA. The venue is wheelchair accessible.

Saxophonist Jaleel Shaw is a member of the Roy Haynes Quartet and the Mingus Big Band, and has performed with Christian McBride, Jason Moran, Stefon Harris, Roy Hargrove, Dave Holland, Jimmy Cobb, and more. Upon graduating from high school in his native Philadelphia, Shaw received a full-tuition scholarship to attend Berklee, where he graduated with degrees in music education and performance. At Berklee, he received the Billboard Endowed Scholarship, two Woodwind Department Awards, the Outstanding Student Teacher Award, and the Boston Jazz Society Award. Shaw then earned a master's in jazz performance from the Manhattan School of Music in New York.

Shaw’s 2005 debut CD, Perspective, received rave reviews in the New York Times and Jazzwise and was named one of the top five debuts of the year by All About Jazz. That year, Shaw joined the Roy Haynes Quartet, and was featured on Haynes’s 2006 Grammy-nominated recording, Whereas. In 2008, Shaw started his own label, Changu Records, on which he released his second album, Optimism. He has received two ASCAP Young Jazz Composer Awards, and was nominated for Alto Saxophonist of the Year in the Jazz Times 2011 Readers Poll.
