Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival, Boston

Produced by the Berklee College of Music, this celebration of jazz, Latin, R&B, soul, funk and rap runs from Sept. 23-25 and is totally free. With 3 stages and 70 vendors stretching across six blocks in Boston's South End, you can listen to established acts like the New Gary Burton Quartet or rising stars like rapper Shea Rose, herself a 2011 Berklee grad. This year's festival has a focus on global music, so it's kind of like going on a `round-the-world trip for the price of an AirTran flight to Boston. beantownjazz.org
