This large tent, whose irregular tuffets resemble the sails of a surreal schooner in the green sea of Tanglewood's manicured lawns, staged lunch and dinner shows with young performers during the weekend. Generally speaking, they were highly accomplished, representing the full spectrum of jazz from ragtime to post-modern, from handslapping to the effects pedal. What they all had in common was their birthdays – it’s unlikely any of them were born before 1985—and their looks.
