June 2012 SFJAZZ Hotplate Mix


This month's SFJAZZ Hotplate features local songstress Scheherazade Stone breathing new life into the words of Gil Scott-Heron this Thursday night at Amnesia (853 Valencia Street). The evening will also include the Front Burner multi-media session on the fascinating life and times of the legendary musician and poet, led by SFJAZZ Education Director Rebeca Mauleón during intermission.

This hour long Hotplate mix features a number of classic gems taken from Gil Scott-Heron's many solo led recordings, as well as some choice cuts he co-wrote and produced with multi-instrumentalist and long time music counterpart Brian Jackson. With the ability to blend jazz, funk, and soulful grooves together with socially conscious poetry and politically driven vocals, it's easy to see why many (including myself) consider Gil Scott-Heron one of the most influential and important singer/songwriters to have come out of America in the second half of the last century.
