San Francisco Jazz Collective

The SFJazz Collective (SF stands for San Francisco) was founded by Joshua Redman in 2004 as a project for the San Francisco Jazz Festival and directed by 2007. In addition to Redman, the octet included Bobby Hutcherson, Renee Rosnes, Nicholas Payton, Miguel Zenón, Josh Roseman, Robert Hurst and Brian Blade. Gil Goldstein was the arranger.

From the beginning, the collective devoted himself to the work of a stylistic musician of modern jazz: Ornette Coleman, then John Coltrane (2005), Herbie Hancock (2006), Thelonious Monk (2007), Wayne Shorter (2008), McCoy Tyner (2009) and Horace Silver (2010). The members also write compositions for the ensemble and, from 2007, the composer took up the role of the bandleader. The worldwide touring octet is celebrated “because of its energetic stage presence and the experimentation-friendly style”.

In 2005 the debut album was released by Nonesuch Records with Coleman compositions, which was followed by an album each year; In 2011 the SF JazzCollective presented a Stevie Wonder tribute album. In 2012, the ensemble was nominated for the JJA Awards of the American Jazz Journalists Association. In spring 2013, the band included Miguel Zenón, David Sánchez, Avishai Cohen, Robin Eubanks, Warren Wolf, Edward Simon, Matt Penman and Obed Calvaire.
