When: Fri., April 21, 8 p.m.
The SFJAZZ Collective is an all-star jazz ensemble comprising eight of the finest performers/composers at work today. Launched in 2004, the group convenes in San Francisco each spring for a multi-week residency. Throughout this extended rehearsal period, the octet workshops new repertoire and interacts with the Bay Area community through SFJAZZ educational programs. The Collective then performs in San Francisco before touring the country. Each year the ensemble performs a new list of compositions by a modern jazz master and new pieces by its members.
