Step into the SFJAZZ “living room” and hear artists and tastemakers spinning their favorite recordings while in conversation. Listening Parties offer listeners the chance to get behind-the-scenes and hear about music from the artist’s perspective. The format is an on-stage conversation in the Robert N. Miner Auditorium, accompanied by the artist’s pick of recorded, and sometimes live, excerpts. The conversation closes with questions from the audience followed by a reception with complimentary drinks and bites.
This Listening Party will feature SFJAZZ Collective members Chris Potter, Warren Wolf, David Sánchez, and Edward Simon taking a deep dive into their recording process as an ensemble, their influences and previewing their SFJAZZ residency, which celebrates the group’s 20th anniversary. The all-star resident ensemble will perform November 1-4, 2023 at the SFJAZZ Center.
