Hugh Masekela

Hugh Masekela gave a pair of uplifting performances at the SFJAZZ Center this week to celebrate his upcoming 75th Birthday. The South African trumpet icon complemented his groovy, feel good music with a resounding message for heightened global awareness and social justice. Most importantly, he had Miner Auditorium getting loose and screaming louder than we've ever heard! All photos courtesy of Scott Chernis unless otherwise noted.

Telling it like it is.

Approaching 75, Masekela still has the moves.

And now, four nights of the Wayne Shorter Quartet! And next week, the Second Annual SFJAZZ Poetry Festival curated by SFJAZZ Poet Laureate Ishmael Reed.
