Season 2 Staff Picks

Tina Leinenweber

This Festival, yet again, fills the fall with more opportunities for more amazing music than any one person can hear; unless you have nothing else going on in life. For the rest of us, including me, below are five shows that heaven and earth should be moved to hear.

      Thursday, December 12, 7:30pm      
      at SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium

As a vocalist, I'm definitely biased when I say: Buika! BUIKA, BUIKA, BUIKA! Seeing her sing is watching madness. Take part in the madness.

      Sunday, September 22, 7:00pm      
      at Davies Symphony Hall

Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club at Davies...enough said!

      Wednesday, March 26, 7:30pm      
      at SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium

I'm amazed by the talent and individuality Hugh Masekela!

      Saturday, May 3, 7:30pm      
      at SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium

I was absolutely amazed by Regina Carter's virtuosic playing, and stellar personality--a woman truly dedicated to her instrument, and passionate about expanding the opportunities for music education in the community and for the youth. Southern Comfort is a must with Regina!

      Saturday, March 15, 7:30pm      
      at SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium

Watching her play is ridiculous! Mix that with a clear death metal drum kit and I'm in for Hiromi.
