SFJAZZ Collective: New Works Reflecting the Moment
DownBeat magazine writes that this ensembles condenses talent, explosive virtuosity and acclaim to a degree that cannot really be found in other comparable jazz line-ups. The SFJAZZ Collective is a true workshop band, a community of co-creators of equal standing. Increased to nine members for this tour, the team is preparing an out of the ordinary show in which they present their compositions inspired by the challenges of today, including the pandemic and the wide gaps between how people view the world.
Rehearsals of the material compiled for this tour began in San Francisco in the fall of 2021 under the musical direction of Chris Potter, and the première took place at the SFJAZZ Center. Each band member came up with a brand-new original composition expressing what it means for them to face the challenges of the 2020s: the problems of the pandemic, racial prejudice and political extremism. Joining the ensemble for this project are the renowned New York singer Gretchen Parlato and one of the most sought-after drummers, Kendrick Scott, who has also had a prominent career as a bandleader.
