The SFJAZZ Collective's newest album SFJAZZ Collective: 10 drops Wednesday, Oct. 22nd (available digitally in early November). This 10-track CD, recorded live during the Collective’s four-night residency at the SFJAZZ Center in October 2013, celebrates its 10-year musical legacy. In anticipation of the release, check out a "leaked" excerpt on Soundcloud: Eric Harland's "Union," performed by the current Collective lineup.
The album release also coincides with the Collective's 2014-15 Tour: "The Music of Joe Henderson & Original Compositions"—each Collective member arranged a composition by the great Joe Henderson and composed an original. The all-star octet kicked off the tour last weekend at the Kennedy Center in DC, and now return home to the SFJAZZ Center for a four-night residency in Miner Auditorium, with CD signings for the new CD each night!

Collective Lineup: alto saxophonist Miguel Zenón, tenor saxophonist David Sánchez, vibraphonist Warren Wolf, trumpeter Avishai Cohen, trombonist Robin Eubanks, pianist Edward Simon, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Obed Calvaire.
