The SFJAZZ Collective is an all-star jazz ensemble comprising eight of the finest performer/composers at work in jazz today. Launched in 2004 by SFJAZZ, the Collective has quickly become one of the most exciting and acclaimed groups on the American and international jazz scenes.
If you aren’t already familiar with the eight artists who comprise the SFJAZZ Collective, you will be. As soloists, composers and bandleaders, they represent what’s happening now in jazz. More than master instrumentalists, each member is possessed of a totally individual creative voice, working collectively to express a unified musical identity.
They also demonstrate that jazz has truly become an international language. Hailing from Puerto Rico, New York, Venezuela, Philadelphia, New Zealand, and Israel, the Collective's multi-cultural lineup mirrors the explosion of jazz talent around the globe.
