Couldn’t embed this concert footage from the San Francisco Jazz Collective directly, so here’s the link to the concert. You really should go listen and watch. There’s a lot of split-screen action, which is really fun to see. Plus, it’s just great music.
Each of the 8 members of the SF Jazz Collective has two tasks each year: Write a new piece specifically for the band, and rearrange a composition by the elder artist whom the Collective has chosen to feature that year. The concert links to their efforts this year, and includes all their original contributions (plus a little story about their tune) and their tribute to Joe Henderson.
And check out Avishai Cohen’s necklace in the photo above. With a necklace like that, you can practice anywhere!
