Revered jazz trumpeter, band leader and educator Herb Pomeroy once urged an audience to toss out their CDs and instead, go out and “see live jazz.”

Pomeroy made the remark in 2005 while taking part in a panel at the Berklee School of Music, where he taught for 41 years. After retiring from Berklee, he joined the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and from 1963 to 1985 he directed its band and developed its formal jazz program.
