SJZ Collective Plays Weather Report

With each member of the SJZ Collective an acclaimed bandleader in his own right, the Collective is a powerhouse of a sextet that represents the sound of the South Bay.

The SJZ Collective includes drummer Wally Schnalle, trumpeter/flugelhorn player John L. Worley, Jr., organist Brian Ho, guitarist Hristo Vitchev, saxophonist Oscar Pangilinan, and bassist Saúl Sierra. Brainchild of drummer Schnalle, the Collective began in 2018 with a program that reimagined the music of Thelonious Monk, with arrangements from all members of the group. In 2019, they debuted a new program featuring the music of Charles Mingus. This year the Collective has chosen to take on the music of one of the most influential bands in the world of jazz fusion, Weather Report.
