Plays The Music Of Stevie Wonder [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Allen Room, New York, NY; March 10, 2012 (rebroadcast June 27, 2014). Excellent FM.

The SFJAZZ Collective is an all-star award-winning jazz ensemble comprising eight of the finest performers/composers at work in jazz today. Launched in 2004 by SFJAZZ, the Collective has become one of the most exciting and acclaimed groups on the jazz scene. The SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco is the Collective’s home base.

The SFJAZZ Collective is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a Spring 2014 Tour and an appearance at the 60th Anniversary Newport Jazz Festival in August by highlighting their greatest arrangements and original compositions. This “best of” performance includes material from many of the Collective’s past and present members along with the tribute composers including Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Horace Silver, Stevie Wonder, and Chick Corea.

To cultivate its distinctive sound, the SFJAZZ Collective convenes in San Francisco each spring for a multi-week residency. Throughout this extended rehearsal period-a rarity in today’s jazz-the octet workshops the season’s new repertoire and interacts with the Bay Area community through SFJAZZ’s education programs for youth and adults. The Collective then takes to the performance stage, including home season concerts under the auspices of the SFJAZZ Spring Season and a national and international tour, with stops in some of the world’s most prominent concert halls.

The Collective recently released the 2-CD set, The Music of Chick Corea & Original Compositions, recorded in March 2013 at the brand new SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco, CA. The Collective’s first and only studio album, Wonder: The Songs of Stevie Wonder, won Outstanding Jazz Album at the 45th Annual NAACP Image Awards in Pasadena, CA on Friday, February 21, 2014.
