When is a flash mob a swarm? When it's a Jazz Week Boston lunchtime jam. Every day this week through May 6, swarms of horn players will descend on South Station to celebrate America's great musical genre. Thursday, Ken Field (above) of the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble will gather a horde for a Saxophone Swarm. Friday, Jerry Sabatini and his fellow trumpeters blow for a Trumpet Swarm. Other jazz events in and around the city abound. Friday events include the Donal Fox Inventions Quartet and vocalist Jane Monheit. On Saturday Riffs & Raps introduces jazz to kids. The full schedule features jazz brunches, concerts, and lots more.
