If you aren’t already familiar with the eight artists who comprise the award-winning SFJAZZ Collective, you will be. As soloists, composers and bandleaders, they represent what’s happening now in jazz. More than master instrumentalists, each member is possessed of a totally individual creative voice, working collectively to express a unified musical identity. They also demonstrate that jazz has truly become an international language. Hailing from Puerto Rico, New York, Venezuela, Philadelphia, New Zealand and Israel, the Collective’s multi-cultural lineup mirrors the explosion of jazz talent around the globe.
