SFJAZZ Collective: The Music Of Chick Corea
The Ensemble: The SFJAZZ Collective is an all-star jazz ensemble comprising eight of the finest performer/composers at work in jazz today. Launched in 2004 by SFJAZZ—the West Coast’s largest nonprofit jazz institution and the presenter of the annual San Francisco Jazz Festival—the Collective has become one of the most exciting and acclaimed groups on the jazz scene. As the New York Times hailed the Collective upon its debut, “A serious jazz band rises in San Francisco.”
To cultivate its distinctive sound, the SFJAZZ Collective convenes in San Francisco each spring for a multi-week residency. Throughout this extended rehearsal period—a rarity in today’s jazz—the octet workshops the season’s new repertoire and interacts with the Bay Area community through SFJAZZ’s education programs for youth and adults.
The Collective then takes to the performance stage, including home season concerts under the auspices of the SFJAZZ Spring Season and a national and international tour, with stops in some of the world’s most prominent concert halls.
After the blockbuster success of the group’s take on the work of soul legend Stevie Wonder, the Collective turns their focus to the music of keyboard genius Chick Corea. Bios: http://www.sfjazz.org/sfjazz-collective-lineup
"Collectives are only as strong as their weakest links, and there are none to be found in the latest lineup of the SFJAZZ Collective." — JazzTimes Magazine
