Overview

Echoes of Highland Jazz: Swingin' in the Boston Suburbs 1983-2003 by Nancy Alimansky

Nancy Alimansky co-founded Highland Jazz, Inc. (1983) and later directed this grassroots jazz organization whose first concerts rang out from a bakery parking lot in Newton Highlands. During 20 years Nancy produced 175+ concerts in 16 different venues. How did Nancy keep the organization viable in an era of shrinking jazz audiences? Her insider perspective, personal anecdotes about musicians, beautiful performance photographs, original watercolors and links to 118 live recordings tell the fascinating tale. Current updates about the performers who played back then prove that Nancy’s efforts from the suburban Highland Jazz stage contributed much to greater Boston’s jazz reputation.
