    SFJAZZ Center's 2019–20 Season to Include Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Laurie Anderson, Rhiannon Giddens, Kronos Quartet

    The SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco has announced its 2019–20 concert season, and featured among the performers taking the Miner Auditorium stage are several Nonesuch artists: Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Laurie Anderson, Rhiannon Giddens, and Kronos Quartet.

    Brad Mehldau, whose new album, Finding Gabriel, was just released on Nonesuch, is the first to take the stage when he and tenor Ian Bostridge perform Mehldau's new song cycle, The Folly of Desire, at SFJAZZ on Tuesday, October 15, 2019. Also on the program is Schumann’s Dichterliebe.

    Joshua Redman Quartet, featuring pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson perform songs from their recently released album Come What May—their first in nearly two decades—over four nights at SFJAZZ, November 14–17. "Nothing beats the cool confidence of a band who have spent years on the road,” says the Times. “It also helps that the seven Redman tunes here are so good ... Four men playing as one."

    Laurie Anderson is an SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director next season and will lead four nights of concerts, January 23–26, 2020. Starting things off is a Trio session with bassist Christian McBride and cellist Rubin Kodheli on Thursday, January 23. Anderson then plays a duo show with Kodheli on Friday, January 24, and different duo set with singer/composer Mike Patton focusing on the final chapter of Jixiao Xinshu, the Ming dynasty military manual on Saturday, January 25. Finally, it's an all-Anderson evening in which she presents songs and solo pieces from her new book on Sunday, January 26.

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi perform songs from their new album, there is no Other, over four nights of shows in Miner Auditorium, February 13–16. "This is acoustic roots music at its most glorious," exclaims Uncut, "and Giddens is fast becoming the genre’s brightest star in the firmament." A double-vinyl edition, with four additional track, expanded liner notes, and photos from the recording session, due Septebmer 13, is available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store with an exclusive, limited-edition, autographed print.

    Kronos Quartet joins trumpeter/composer Terence Blanchard and a choir for the world premiere of his new piece, At War with Ourselves, an exploration of race relations and movements for social justice, on Saturday and Sunday, May 9 and 10, 2020.

    Other performers of note next season include Tigran Hamasyan with special guests Arve Henriksen and Areni Agbabian on Thursday, October 24, 2019, as part of an ECM 50th anniversary celebration; Mariza, who leads a four-night run, May 28–31, 2020; and SFJAZZ Collective, which performs October 31–November 3.

    Tickets for the 2019–20 season go on sale to members on Friday, June 28, and to the general public on Friday, July 12. For more information on these and other performances next season, visit sfjazz.org.

    The first recording of Donnacha Dennehy's The Hunger—performed by Alarm Will Sound led by Alan Pierson, soprano Katherine Manley, and sean nós singer Iarla Ó Lionáird—is out this Friday. Alarm Will Sound has shared a short film in which the composer and performers tell the story behind the piece. "It's not just really about the Irish Famine. It's about any kind of unfolding catastrophe that's complicated by political ideas of 'the other,'" says Dennehy. "This happens throughout the world still to this day. We don't have to look very hard for parallels, I'm afraid." You can watch the short film here.

    Yola has joined The Highwomen—Amanda Shires, Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, and Maren Morris—on the just-released self-titled track to the group's eponymous upcoming album, as does Sheryl Crow. Shires and Carlile wrote the song with Jimmy Webb, who had penned the 1985 tune "Highwayman" for the supergroup by that name featuring Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, and Johnny Cash. Hear it here. Rolling Stone called The Highwomen's recent Newport Folk Festival set with Yola "a triumph" and dubbed her "the single most sought-after voice at this year’s festival."
