SFJazz Collective Releases 2007 Live Album

SFJazz Records has just released a limited edition double-CD from the SFJazz Collective, Live 2007: 4th Annual Concert Tour. The album features original numbers by Collective members as well as new arrangements of the music of Thelonious Monk, and was recorded at various venues on the Collective’s 2007 international tour. The ensemble was created in 2004 as a part of SFJazz, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting jazz on the West Coast. SFJazz is also responsible for the annual San Francisco Jazz Festival, this year celebrating its 25th anniversary with a run from Sept. 22 through Nov. 30.

The Collective convenes in San Francisco each spring for a three-week residency, workshops the season’s repertoire, conducts SFJazz education and outreach programs, and then heads out to perform, first at Bay Area concerts and then at national and international venues.
