The Unsung Jazz Composers Series: SFJAZZ High School All-Stars  

SFJAZZ High School All-Stars Orchestra

For their Spring Season performance, the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars Jazz Orchestra will feature unique works of jazz greats such as Benny Golson (“Killer Joe”) and Tadd Dameron (“If You Could See Me Now,” “Lady Bird”). While these names may not be household American Idols, jazz musicians and fans alike are profoundly intimate with and highly respectful of their works. Exceptional arrangements for big band of these and other jazz composers — whose contributions are essential to the jazz lexicon — will be featured, as well as original penned manuscripts from Dizzy Gillespie. The interpretations of these works by this year’s powerful All-Stars Jazz Orchestra will be a highly significant artistic event featuring the brilliant musicianship of the Bay Area’s most talented young performers, directed by accomplished musician and educator Paul Contos and featuring acclaimed saxophonist Mark Turner!
