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 Zenón, 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
