SFJAZZ Collective

An all-star ensemble comprising eight of the finest performer/composers at work in jazz today, the SFJAZZ Collective’s mission each year is to perform fresh arrangements of works by a modern master and newly commissioned pieces by each Collective member. Through this pioneering approach, simultaneously honoring music’s greatest figures while championing jazz’s up-to-the-minute directions, the Collective embodies SFJAZZ’s commitment to jazz as a living, ever-relevant art form. For the SFJAZZ Center’s fifth season, our resident all-star ensemble presents new arrangements of music by the genius jazz innovator Miles Davis, and freshly minted compositions by the band. More than any other figure, Davis changed the sound of jazz – not once, but consistently over his career – from the birth of bebop in the 1940s to the integration of rock approaches that gave rise to the fusion movement in the 1970s. The Collective highlights the trumpeter and composer’s immense diversity of expression, interpreting epochal work from Davis’ endlessly inventive songbook. Each night of this residency will be recorded for the Collective’s new album release, documenting the work of Miles Davis and original compositions. Come be a part of the new recording!

"You can propose various definitions for what this band represents, but it’s a superbrain for what serious jazz sounds like now. " — The New York Times
"The Collective demonstrates that decades-old music needn't lose its contemporary relevance — not, at least, in the hands of a group this encyclopedic in its knowledge of tradition, but just as versed in the foundation of jazz as a living, breathing and forward-reaching thing. As definitive of the modern mainstream as it gets. " — All About Jazz
