SiriusXM is launching a new monthly, two-hour performance show, Live from SFJAZZ, on Real Jazz channel 67. The show, which is hosted by the San Francisco jazz organization’s founder and executive artistic director Randall Kline, will feature concerts recorded at its central performance venue, the SFJAZZ Center. 

The show’s first episode, featuring vocalist Jazzmeia Horn’s June 12 performance at SFJAZZ, aired on Dec. 7. The second episode will Jan. 4, and will feature the SFJAZZ Collective performing the music of Sly and the Family Stone and Miles Davis. 

Live from SFJAZZ is scheduled to air at 8 p.m. EST on the first Saturday of every month—and will be broadcast again the following Wednesday at 12 a.m.

The show serves as a complement to an already existing weekly show on SiriusXM called SFJAZZ Collective Radio, which focuses on the organization’s “house band,” a leaderless ensemble that was founded 15 years ago. The group’s personnel changes regularly; its current lineup features drummer Obed Calvaire, trumpeter Etienne Charles, vibraphonist Warren Wolf, pianist Edward Simon, guitarist/singer Martin Luther McCoy, bassist Matt Brewer, saxophonist David Sánchez, and guitarist Adam Rogers.
