SFJAZZ Collective
The Music of Horace Silver

Each year this all-star, 8-man co-op of the world’s most gifted musicians—bandleaders all—picks the music of one of modern jazz’s great composers, re-sets it for the collective, then makes a national tour to perform it.  Featuring the “lyrical, spiritual, and original” Zenon (All About Jazz); Harris, “one of the most important young artists in jazz” (LA Times); and Turner, “possibly jazz’s premier player” (NY Times), the jazz ambassadors shine their blazing light on Silver, the hard bop pioneer who created a newer, earthier Blue Note sound from R&B, gospel, and Cape Verdean folk songs. Silver’s quintessential charts light up in the hands of America’s most astounding ensemble, who “roar with the kind of chemistry that [can] truly be deemed collective” (SF Chronicle).


“The standard of musicianship, in terms of solo fire power, could hardly be higher”
