(2013/2014 Performing Arts)
10th Anniversary Season
“The octet boasts as much or more collective talent, firepower and critical acclaim than any other jazz ensemble going.” DownBeat
“You can propose various definitions for what this band represents, but it’s a superbrain for what serious jazz sounds like now.” The New York Times
The SFJAZZ Collective comprises eight of the most accomplished and acclaimed musicians in jazz today. These exceptional artists have come together in pursuit of a larger purpose – namely, the celebration of jazz as a constantly evolving, ever-relevant, quintessentially modern art form. In a celebration of their 10th anniversary this fall, the award-winning ensemble will highlight their greatest arrangements and original compositions in a “best of” performance featuring material from the collective’s composers, including Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk and Stevie Wonder.
