Joe Henderson Hotplate Festival
Joe Henderson Hotplate Festival · Aug 14-17
Jazz legend Joe Henderson had a long and memorable history with SFJAZZ, performing over a dozen times in various settings including a duet with tabla great Zakir Hussain at Grace Cathedral, a salute to Antônio Carlos Jobim with Herbie Hancock, and a 1993 tribute night entitled “We Love Joe” featuring his quintet with John Scofield, Charlie Haden and Al Foster, his Big Band, and the Kronos Quartet.
We formally dedicate the Joe Henderson Lab, named for the iconic saxophonist, with a week of performances that pay tribute to four of his greatest recorded moments.
The official Dedication Ceremony will take place Thursday, August 14th at 6:30pm and will feature remarks by SFJAZZ co-founder Randall Kline, as well as Joe Henderson's two sons Malcolm Daniel and Kim Vasquez.
Patrons that hold tickets to that evenings 7pm show are invited to show up early for this special event.
