SFJAZZ Center One-Year Anniversary, Pt.2

After a clinic with the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars earlier this week, Resident Artistic Director Bill Frisell reflected, "So much has happened in a year. It seems impossible. I said, 'Wait, that's two years!' It just seems like an incredible bunch of stuff happened." In recognition of the SFJAZZ Center's One-Year Anniversary, SFJAZZ Members get 25% off all of Bill Frisell's shows this weekend, starting with his debut of the Big Sur Quintet tonight!

To continue celebrating the Center's One-Year Anniversary, below is a collection of photo-highlights, spanning from the Historic Grand Opening, Season 1, the 31st San Francisco Jazz Festival, the first annual Summer Sessions and Season 2, still underway!
