Next On HOTPLATE: Howard Wiley Plays Ornette Coleman's 'The Shape of Jazz To Come'

SFJAZZ Hotplate returns next Thursday! Monster saxophonist Howard Wiley plays Ornette Coleman's defining The Shape of Jazz To Come, which drastically altered the jazz landscape in 1959, an already pivotal year in jazz (Kind of Blue, Giant Steps, Time Out, etc...). Come hang and hear Wiley recreate Coleman's modern jazz masterpiece. As always, DJ Pat Les Stache will be on decks spinning Ornette and other greats. You don't want to miss this one!

Grab a seat at To nerd out before the show, have a listen to Studio 360's podcast on Ornette Coleman's legacy (with Sonny Rollins!). Also, check out a recent feature piece, "Sax man Howard Wiley: jazz should be sexy."
