MUSIC: “SF Jazz Collective”

From Willamette Week, 2/13/08 [Portland Jazz Festival Coverage]:

The Frisco-based nonprofit SF Jazz is like the Lincoln Center of the West Coast, with a stated mission to advance new forms of jazz and celebrate all the diverse places it’s already been. The SF Jazz Collective is the organization’s bread-and-butter project, bringing together eight top-notch jazz masters each year to tour internationally as emissaries of jazz education, exhibition and preservation. It’s led by one of the more dynamic young jazz musicians to emerge during the ’90s, saxophonist Joshua Redman. In addition to playing new compositions from the octet’s members (who include tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano, Eric Harland on drums, and Grammy winner Robin Eubanks on trombone), the Collective’s performance will pay tribute to legendary saxophonist Wayne Shorter.
