The SFJAZZ Collective is an all-star jazz ensemble comprising eight of the finest performers/composers at work today. Launched in 2004, the group convenes in San Francisco each spring for a multiweek residency. Throughout this extended rehearsal period, the octet workshops new repertoire and interacts with the Bay Area community through SFJAZZ educational programs. The collective then performs in San Francisco before touring the country. Each year the ensemble performs a new list of compositions by a modern jazz master and new pieces by its members.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
