The venerable Ryles Jazz Club was jam packed Tuesday night with notable Boston-Cambridge jazz musician, impresarios, all of Boston’s jazz radio personalities, and other such community luminaries. All gathered by the advocacy group JazzBoston to honor Mark Harvey. Moving words and soulful sounds paid tribute to his “44-year’s of contributions to Boston-area jazz,” as one speaker put it. “When something important happens in our jazz community, Mark Harvey is usually involved in it. He is a musical citizen of the highest plateau.”
Congratulations Rev. Mark Sumner Harvey!
