This season marks the addition of three exciting new additions to the band: vocalist Gretchen Parlato, drummer Kendrick Scott, and saxophonist Chris Potter, who will also assume the role of Music Director for the ensemble. The band also features David Sánchez tenor saxophone Etienne Charles (trumpet), Warren Wolf (vibraphone), Edward Simon (piano), Matt Brewer (bass) and Martin Luther McCoy (vocals/guitar).

This year is different. Great musicians have always created work that reflects the state of the world around them, and in response to the tumultuous times in which we find ourselves, the Collective has decided to forego a specific tribute artist in order to compose, arrange, and perform original compositions dedicated to who we are as a country and a people in light of the fight for racial justice, the global pandemic, and the unprecedented political polarization and upheaval we have been facing in our daily lives.

LINEUP:
Chris Potter tenor saxophone
David Sánchez tenor saxophone
Etienne Charles trumpet
Warren Wolf vibraphone
Edward Simon piano
Matt Brewer bass
Kendrick Scott drums
Martin Luther McCoy vocals/guitar
Gretchen Parlato vocals

An all-star ensemble comprising the finest performer/composers at work in jazz today, the Collective assembles each year to create fresh arrangements of works by a modern master and newly commissioned pieces by each member of the band. Through this pioneering approach, simultaneously honoring music’s greatest figures while championing jazz’s up-to-the-minute directions, the Collective embodies SFJAZZ’s commitment to jazz as a living, ever-relevant art form.
