SFJAZZ has announced its 2022–23 concert season—marking the 10th anniversary season of the SFJAZZ Center and the 40th anniversary of the organization—including performances from Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Christian McBride, Brian Blade, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Laurie Anderson, and Mariza.

First up is Brad Mehldau, who gives two solo concerts on Monday, September 19, and Tuesday, September 20, at Herbst Theatre. Mehldau’s latest album, Jacob’s Ladder, released this past March, features new music that reflects on scripture and the search for God through music inspired by the prog rock he loved as a young adolescent—his gateway to the fusion that eventually led to his discovery of jazz. “Skillfully weaving these elements into storytelling sound collages,” says Mojo, “Mehldau takes the listener on a memorable musical journey."

Later that week, Mehldau joins his fellow members of the original Joshua Redman Quartet—Redman (saxophone), Christian McBride (bass), and Brian Blade (drums)—to perform songs from their 2020 album, RoundAgain, the group’s first recording since 1994’s MoodSwing, and more, for two sets at SFJAZZ Center’s Miner Auditorium on Friday, September 23. NPR calls RoundAgain "a flawless effort," adding: "Each one of them is at the very top of his game now."

The following month, Portuguese singer Mariza takes the Miner Auditorium stage for four nights of shows at Miner Auditorium, from Thursday, October 13, through Sunday, October 16. Mariza has released two albums in the US on Nonesuch: Mariza Sings Amália (2021), celebrating the 20th anniversary of her career and the centenary of the late Queen of Fado, Amália Rodrigues, and Mundo (2016), which earned her the Songlines Award for Best Artist of the Year.

Laurie Anderson joins the SFJAZZ Center 10th Anniversary Celebrations by taking part in the Resident Artistic Directors Reunion event—featuring artists who have served as Resident Artistic Directors at SFJAZZ over the last decade—in Miner Auditorium on Saturday, January 14, 2023.

Cécile McLorin Salvant has a full weekend of shows in Miner Auditorium from Friday, May 5, through Sunday, May 7, including two sets on Sunday. Salvant’s concerts feature songs from her 2022 Nonesuch debut album, Ghost Song, which the New York Times calls "her most revealing and rewarding album yet.” The Arts Desk exclaims: "The treasure trove of marvels that is Ghost Song exceeds all expectations."

    Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra)'s new album, The Past Is Still Alive, is out now. Segarra made the album during a period of personal grief, when they found inspiration in radical poetry, railroad culture, outsider art, the work of writer Eileen Myles, and activist groups like ACT UP and Gran Fury. Segarra uses their lyrics as a way to immortalize and say goodbye to those they have loved and lost, and to honor both the heartbroken and the hopeful parts of themselves. "Segarra has created an epic tale of life on the road, a nearly mythic version of their own life story that stands alongside other great American musical travelogues," exclaims NPR Music. "Career-defining." Rolling Stone says: "Segarra has honed their craft into a cohesive, astonishingly realized singer-songwriter record ... the best batch of songs Segarra's ever written." Paste calls it "a celebratory measure of love, sanctuary, and defiance ... In their hands, the trauma of the present day is a prelude to the possibilities of a better tomorrow."
