SFJAZZ Collective

The Collective’s new 3-CD set, Live in New York 2011, Season 8, was recorded in the intimate setting of the Jazz Standard in NYC. Now the band returns for six exciting shows at Yoshi’s Oakland, the Bay Area’s favorite jazz club. This three-night stand gives local audiences another opportunity to hear the band’s mind-blowing arrangements of Stevie Wonder classics, as well as stunning new original compositions. The all-star octet’s visibility and acclaim has exploded this year, with a string of blockbuster performances across the U.S. and Canada, and a set of wildly popular in-studio videos that have gone viral on YouTube. Their digital track sales have even hit the Billboard jazz chart! For those who missed the Collective’s sold-out 2011 show, this is your chance to experience the buzz of the jazz world, up-close and personal.

New 3-CD set features the music of Stevie Wonder and new compositions!
