SFJAZZ Collective

Honoring both the all-star performances from 2013’s Grand Opening week and the ongoing Season 5 theme of “traditions in transition,” all four nights following the 2017 SFJAZZ Gala will focus on tributes to iconic artists with long ties to the Bay Area, curated by today’s jazz giants who followed in their legendary footsteps. In addition to the curating artist, each night will include performances by the SFJAZZ Collective, Grand Opening week performer Joe Lovano, and former SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Directors Terence Blanchard and Bill Frisell.

ABOUT THIS NIGHT
Curated by powerhouse drummer Cindy Blackman, this night honors the work of master drummer Tony Williams, a hugely influential artist who provided the polyrhythmic fire powering Miles Davis’ second great quintet in the mid 1960s. His band Lifetime helped pioneer the fusion movement, and in 1990 the longtime Bay Area resident premiered an SFJAZZ-commissioned work that featured Herbie Hancock and the Kronos Quartet.
