This year brings a rare Festival appearance by our resident supergroup, in a “last chance” opportunity to hear their Miles Davis and Sly Stone material! Comprising the finest performer/composers at work in jazz today, the Collective assembles each year to create fresh arrangements of works by a modern master.

Rogers is best known for his work with Chris Potter, David Binney, and Randy Brecker in addition to his work as a bandleader, and McCoy is a masterful soul singer known for his work with The Roots and his memorable performance in director Julie Taymor’s Beatles-inspired film Across The Universe. Released respectively in May and July 1969 by a pair of artists connected by mutual respect, inspiration, and a commitment to artistic exploration, Stand! and In a Silent Way were beacons of hope and new possibilities during a turbulent time in American history. Sly’s classics “I Want to Take You Higher,” “Everyday People” and “Sing a Simple Song” have become timeless expressions of joy and positivity, while Davis’ evocative work on In a Silent Way pushed jazz into bold new directions influenced by pop, R&B, and funk.

Through this pioneering approach, simultaneously honoring music’s greatest figures while championing jazz’s up-to-the-minute directions, the Collective embodies SFJAZZ’s commitment to jazz as a living, ever-relevant art form. This year the Collective celebrates the 50th Anniversary of two of the essential albums in popular music, Sly and Family Stone’s Stand! and Miles Davis’ In a Silent Way, featuring vocalist Martin Luther McCoy and guitarist Adam Rogers.

The SFJAZZ Collective delves into a turbulent era when music seemed to evolve as quickly as the daily headlines.
