From JazzBoston: No Walls--a post-election message for America

My colleagues at JazzBoston, a non-profit support and advocacy group for jazz, have created a post-election message of hope and inclusivity anchored by my composition "No Walls."  I'm honored that they would find this musical work to have significance for these troubled times. The message and music have been posted on YouTubeFacebook and Twitter with a call to friends and colleagues to share it. I hope you will all do the same. Let’s see if we can make the music’s message of inclusivity, unity, healing, hope and joy go viral. Please share!  -- Mark Harvey

"No Walls” is an anthem of inclusivity, embracing diversity and celebrating our common humanity. Like all jazz, it transcends differences, promotes healing and unity, and brings hope and joy. It was composed by Mark Sumner Harvey, founder and director of Boston’s beloved Aardvark Jazz Orchestra, now in its 44th year. In addition to his roles as trumpeter and band leader, Harvey is a minister, educator, community builder, and musical champion of social justice. He traces his ancestry to the legendary Boston abolitionist, statesman, and U.S. Senator, Charles Sumner.
