SFJAZZ Collective

The Music of Miles Davis and Original Compositions

April 2, 2017
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Eight jazz all-stars make up the award-winning SFJAZZ Collective, known for its commitment to jazz as a constantly evolving, ever-relevant art form. In a mighty one-night-only performance, the ensemble showcases original compositions alongside a tribute to legendary jazz trumpeter/composer Miles Davis. More than anyone else, Davis consistently changed the sound of jazz from the birth of bebop in the 1940s to the integration of rock approaches that gave rise to the fusion movement in the 1970s. 

SFJAZZ Collective: Miguel Zenón, David Sánchez, Sean Jones, Robin Eubanks, Warren Wolf, Edward Simon, Matt Penman and Obed Calvaire
