SFJAZZ
39th SAN FRANCISCO JAZZ FESTIVAL
SFJAZZ Center / 201 Franklin St. / SF

SFJAZZ GALA 2022 HONORING WYNTON MARSALIS
SFJAZZ Center / 201 Franklin St. / SF
6/3/22 – 8:30PM

Guest:  Randall Kline / SFJAZZ Founder, Executive Artistic Director

Join David as he speaks with Randall Kline about the upcoming jazz festival and Gala 2022 honoring Wynton Marsalis. In 1983, Kline put on the first Jazz in the City festival – a two-night festival, featuring local artists such as the KJAZZ All-Stars and Bebop and Beyond, with performances at the Herbst Theatre and Justin Herman Plaza.

40 years later - and one $64 million SFJAZZ Center later - the Center is uniquely devoted to jazz programming – the only other major venue with this focus is Jazz at Lincoln Center in NYC.

Kline’s vision extends beyond the festival and the venue, he also assembled the SFJAZZ Collective – an eclectic group with a revolving cast of musicians and composers. The Collective also records and tours internationally.
