Title JALC Radio - SF Jazz Collective
Season 16, Episode 51
Airdate 10/09/2009
Hosted by Wendell Pierce
In 2004, San Francisco Jazz Festival presenter Randall Kline and the saxophonist Joshua Redman agreed – there wasn’t enough new jazz music being written. And much of what had been written in the late twentieth century– even by artists as well known as Herbie Hancock and McCoy Tyner - wasn’t being treated as part of the core repertoire. To remedy the situation, they put together “the SF Jazz Collective.” Featuring eight top-flight musicians who agreed to put some weeks aside from their own ensembles to rehearse and tour with the SF Jazz Collective.
