Original show description below.

Since 2009, SFJAZZ has presented the Hotplate series—a monthly concert event that honors the greatest albums in jazz history with tribute performances by the finest local musicians. Originally held at Club Amnesia in San Francisco’s Mission District, the series has been based in the Joe Henderson Lab since the opening of the SFJAZZ Center in 2013.

Saxophonist and composer Kristen Strom is one of the Bay Area's highly regarded artists in the scene, contributing to more than 30 albums and has performed with Manhattan Transfer, Roberta Flack, Johnny Mathis, Jimmy Heath, Steve Turre, the San Jose Symphony, and many others. Along with her quintet, she breathes new life into the 1960 hard-bop masterpiece Soul Station by saxophonist Hank Mobley. This legendary Blue Note session that also featured pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers (Mr. P.C.), and drummer Art Blakey, included two highly regarded standards in "Remember" and "If I Should Lose You," as well as the hard-hitting swingin' numbers "This I Dig Of You" and "Split Feelin's" and more. The recording is widely considered to be one of Mobley's best-known albums.
