About SFJAZZ Collective

  • The SFJAZZ Collective is an eight-piece jazz ensemble founded by SFJAZZ, a West Coast non-profit organization and presenter of the San Francisco Jazz Festival. The group was founded in 2004 by Joshua Redman (tenor saxophone and artistic director), Bobby Hutcherson (vibraphone), Miguel Zenón (alto saxophone) Nicholas Payton (trumpet), Renee Rosnes (piano), Josh Roseman (trombone), Robert Hurst (bass), and Brian Blade (drums), a line-up that has changed over the years.

    Each year since its inception, the collective spends a three-week spring residency in San Francisco rehearsing new repertoire, with a focus each year on the music of a different modern jazz master as well as a new piece commissioned from each collective member. This is followed each year by an international concert tour and finally the release of a CD representing that year's repertoire. The first two years' releases—SFJAZZ Collective and SFJAZZ Collective 2—explore the music of Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane, respectively, and were released on Nonesuch Records.
