Season 2 Staff Picks

Allison Blomerth

      Friday, October 18, 7:00pm & 9:30pm      
      at SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium

No way you can sit still in your seat for Robert Glasper…he's groovin' the entire show, and you'll have Black Radio on repeat for weeks.

      Friday, January 24, 7:30pm      
      at Grace Cathedral

When Season 2 was announced, this show stood out as a must-see. This is his SFJAZZ debut, and if there is any instrument that can go deep into your soul and give you chills, it's the organ (also, sequined shirts). 

      Saturday, February 22, 7:30pm      
      at SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium

Always a heartfelt and emotional performance from vibraphone legend Bobby Hutcherson. And he's joined by three jazz greats, Sanborn, DeFrancesco and Hart.

      Saturday, March 15, 7:30pm      
      at SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium

I'm kicking myself for missing this show last season. Everyone is still talking about her killer performance!

      Saturday, May 10, 7:30pm      
      at SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium

This avant-garde rock jazz trio is foot-tapping, head-nodding glorious-ness. These guys are fun and clever - they write their own stuff and do brilliant covers. I can't wait to hear how they sound in our Auditorium.
