Special Notice for Leadership and Broadcast Circle Members: See the SF JAZZ Collective LIVE at the Mondavi Center!
2013 has been a great year for the SF JAZZ organization. The new SF JAZZ Center opened in January in the heart of San Francisco’s performing arts district, and its flagship band, the SF JAZZ Collective, is celebrating its 10th anniversary. As soloists, composers and bandleaders, they represent what’s happening now in jazz. Hailing from Puerto Rico, New York, Venezuela, Philadelphia, New Zealand, Miami and Israel, the Collective’s multi-cultural lineup mirrors the explosion of jazz talent around the globe. The Collective has made a habit of providing fresh perspective on jazz repertoire through original arrangements of jazz legends from Thelonious Monk to Ornette Coleman. To celebrate in style, the octet will reach back into this rich songbook, polishing the gems from each of their preceding annual recordings and taking them out on tour.
