Event Details

The Jazz Heritage Center is proud to present the second Conversations with Sonny on Sunday, June 23.  Jazz historian and radio personality Sonny Buxton will interview legendary jazz sax man John Handy.  Mr. Handy has spent 64 of his 80 years as a professional musician, making his mark on the jazz scene and working with many musiccal greats around the world.  In addition to being a consummate musician, Mr. Handy is a composer, arranger, bandleader and educator who has been inducted into the San Francisco State University Alumni Hall of Fame.  There is also a music scholarship in his name at SF State.  Like Sonny Buxton, John Handy has a keen memory, a sharp wit and is a wonderful storyteller.  You will not want to miss this engaging conversation between two dynamic men sharing insights and memories from John Handy's remarkable career. 

Conversations with Sonny will take place in our Media & Education Theater at 1330 Fillmore Street.  Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.  The one-hour conversation will be followed by a reception in our Lush Life Gallery at 1320 Fillmore Street.  Conversations with Sonny is being videotaped for archival purposes for current and future audiences.  Your attendance confirms your willingness to be videotaped as part of the program.

Jazz Heritage Center


The mission of the Jazz Heritage Center (JHC) is to ensure that current and future generations discover the Fillmore District’s unique role in shaping American jazz, particularly the role of African American musicians and the African American community of the Fillmore in creating that legacy. The Jazz Heritage Center exists to provide citizens and visitors the opportunity to experience, understand and appreciate San Francisco’s unique, yet under-represented, place in the history of the American Jazz scene, and to encourage residents of the Fillmore District to recollect and enjoy their cultural and musical history.
