SFJazz Collective

Led by tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman, the SFJAZZ Collective -- "SF" as in San Francisco -- is a forward-thinking big band featuring a stellar lineup of musicians both young and old.

Besides Redman, the octet includes vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, pianist Renee Rosnes, trumpeter Nicholas Payton, alto saxophonist Miguel ZenĂ³n, trombonist Josh Roseman, bassist Robert Hurst, and drummer Brian Blade. The collective released its debut album on Nonesuch in 2005. SF Jazz Collective, Vol. 2 followed a year later. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
