SFJAZZ Collective

Some of jazz’s most compelling improvisers and composers have come through the SFJAZZ Collective, a stellar octet founded in 2003 with a two-fold mission: to fuel the composition of new music and celebrate the art of the modern jazz masters who enriched our musical life and language. Every year, SFJAZZ’s acclaimed resident ensemble – whose members have included such great musicians as Bobby Hutcherson, Renee Rosnes, Joshua Redman, Joe Lovano and Brian Blade – creates and performs eight new works and eight new arrangements of tunes by the honored artist, whether it’s Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk or Stevie Wonder. The current octet is a burnished international ensemble comprising alto saxophonist Miguel Zenón, tenor saxophonist David Sánchez, vibraphonist Warren Wolf, trumpeter Avishai Cohen, trombonist Robin Eubanks, pianist Edward Simon, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Obed Calvaire. They’re playing their new pieces and the bracingly original music of Joe Henderson, the late tenor saxophone giant and composer who lived in San Francisco and was long associated with SFJAZZ. These performances will be recorded for their upcoming album, so be part of SFJAZZ history in the making.
