In the Artists’ Words
We recently spoke with the members of the SFJAZZ Collective about the songs they’ll be featuring in their set. Check out what they had to say about these Michael Jackson classics and compare the originals to the jazz covers over in our News section.
About the Artist
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, and the SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco is their home base. This SFJAZZ Collective tour finds the group celebrating the music of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, as well as their own original compositions. The group will release SFJAZZ Live 2015: Music of Michael Jackson & Original Compositions in late February.
In addition to its outstanding line-up, the SFJAZZ Collective has been praised for its innovative approach to repertoire. Each year, the ensemble performs a new list of compositions by a modern master and new pieces by the Collective members (commissioned by SFJAZZ). Through this pioneering approach, simultaneously honoring music history while championing the music’s up-to-the-minute directions, the Collective embodies SFJAZZ’s commitment to jazz as a living, ever-relevant art form.
Buy your tickets today and don’t miss this opportunity as the SFJAZZ Collective brings the sound of SFJAZZ Dallas jazz fans have come to know and love.
