Music by the  Kevin Harris Project (Jazz Piano)

“When the unmistakable musical influences of Thelonius Monk, Danilo Perez, and Charlie Parker intersect with J.S.Bach, Scott Joplin, and the folkloric rhythms of Cuba, could one possibly conceptualize the celebration that occurs at that intersection? Boston-based jazz pianist Kevin Harris plays a distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary music that seeks to explore such a crossroad.”

Preserving herbs: A demo by local resident Bridie Andrews, founder of Boston Herbs on how to preserve herbs and vegetables in oil, in sugar, in pickles, and as frozen supplies in your refrigerator.
