    Jazz Week 2016: New Traditions Take Root
    From Roxbury to Mattapan to Beacon Hill to City Hall, new and not-so-new events are becoming annual features of Boston Jazz Week. Jazz Week 2015 marked a significant new engagement with Boston's core African-American communities in Roxbury, Mattapan, and Dorchester (and their historical predecessors on Beacon Hill and in Boston's West and South Ends), and this year's tenth edition of Jazz Week (with the theme "New Jazz Traditions") looks to solidify and deepen that relationship.
