Spotlight: Bobby Hutcherson Birthday Celebration

Following directly on the heels of Opening Night, Grand Opening Week 1 continues the musical “consecration” of the historic opening of the SFJAZZ Center with four evenings of concerts featuring many of the Opening Night artists – with more special guests joining in as the week progresses — often in once-in-a-lifetime collaborations.

Week one of the Grand Opening culminates on vibraphone legend Bobby Hutcherson’s birthday. Perhaps the most influential jazz vibraphonist, Hutcherson — a Bay Area resident — has recorded 40 albums as a leader and worked with a who’s who of jazz greats. Part of the SFJAZZ family since its earliest days, Hutcherson has performed on countless SFJAZZ concerts and was a founding member of the SFJAZZ Collective in 2003. The evening will include McCoy Tyner, Joshua Redman, Mary Stallings, the Resident Artistic Directors, the SFJAZZ Collective, and the week’s only appearance of tap great Savion Glover.

Please join us for this one-of-a-kind birthday celebration for Mr. Bobby Hutcherson!
