This performance has been canceled. We hope to bring back these artists to Boston for a future season.
The SFJAZZ Collective is an all-star award-winning jazz ensemble made up of eight of the finest performers/composers at work in jazz today. The current octet is a burnished international ensemble comprising tenor saxophonist David Sánchez, vibraphonist Warren Wolf, trumpeter Etienne Charles, pianist Edward Simon, bassist and vocalist Aneesa Strings, drummer Obed Calvaire, saxophonist and Artistic Director Chris Potter, and featuring guest vocalist and Celebrity Series favorite, Lizz Wright. For this performance, the Collective celebrates the music of iconic singer and songwriter Joni Mitchell — a singular artist with deep connections to the jazz continuum whose work continues to have an extraordinary influence on popular culture.
