In 2003 Randall Kline and Joshua Redman, both concerned that modern jazz (mid 20th century to today) was being overlooked by a jazz audience mostly embracing jazz from the 40s and 50s, decided to create a collective of musicians who would bridge the chasm between old school and new school. These young musicians, this year a truly international group, introduce new arrangements of the traditional songbook as well as showcasing original compositions by members of the collective. Covering composers such as Thelonious Monk ("Crepuscule with Nellie"), McCoy Tyner ("Fly With the Wind"), Horace Silver ("Song for My Father"), Stevie Wonder, Chick Corea, and compositions by the musicians in this year's incarnation of SFJAZZ, the group pays respect to those masters who came before as well as gaining the respect of the musicians who will play them in later years. This year's Collective consists of Miguel Zenon (alto sax), David Sa'nchez (tenor saxophone), Avishai Cohen (trumpet), Robin Eubanks (trombone), Warren Wolf (vibraphone, marimba), Edward Simon (piano), Matt Penman (bass) and Obed Calvaire (drums).
