About this clip:
Jazz harp luminary Brandee Younger and her trio perform her composition “Unrest II” during her performance at the 39th San Francisco Jazz Festival on 6/13/22 at the SFJAZZ Center, broadcast on Fridays Live.
About the concert:
Carrying on and expanding the tradition of pioneering jazz harpists Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane, Brandee Younger made her public debut in 2007 as a grad student at NYU, when saxophonist Ravi Coltrane enlisted the then-23-year-old to participate in the memorial service for his mother Alice. A student of jazz great Jackie McLean, Younger has collaborated with artists from the worlds of jazz and hip hop, including Jack DeJohnette, Charlie Haden, Pharoah Sanders, Lauren Hill, and Common. In 2021 she released her Impulse! Records debut, Somewhere Else, which earned Younger a Best Instrumental Composition GRAMMY nomination for the track “Beautiful is Black.”
She performs at SFJAZZ in a trio with master musicians Dezron Douglas on bass
and Allan Mednard on drums.
