The Berklee-Monterey Quintet is made up of five of Berklee College's finest musicians, many of them already noted performers in their own right.

This band plays straight-ahead classic jazz, the sort you'd expect to hear in a smoky bar. All five members looked very serious, intense and focused - possibly so focused they didn't even notice how much the audience at the Monterey Jazz Festival was enjoying their music.
