About the Event

Described as “contemporary jazz’s premier all-star band” by The New York Times, SFJAZZ Collective is celebrating its 20th season by performing a wide selection of material chosen and arranged by the members, from new compositions to timeless classics and everything in between. 

An all-star ensemble comprising the finest performer/composers at work in jazz today, the SFJAZZ Collective was conceived to create fresh arrangements of works by modern masters and newly commissioned pieces by each member of the band. Through this pioneering approach—simultaneously honoring music’s greatest figures while championing jazz’s up-to-the-minute directions—the collective has embodied SFJAZZ’s commitment to jazz as a dynamic, ever-evolving art form. 

Following last season’s inspired concept to reflect the moment by rearranging socially relevant classics along with debuting fresh compositions that reflect the tumultuous state of the world, the band is changing things up yet again. Under the direction of Chris Potter, this lineup, featuring David Sánchez, Mike Rodriguez, Warren Wolf, Edward Simon, Matt Brewer, and Kendrick Scott, is among the most dynamic ever, ensuring each performance is fresh, fun, and full of surprises.
