Event Description

This year’s artist and faculty lineup for SJW is nothing short of amazing. You’d have to comb the capitals of Europe and scour the clubs of New York to experience this collection of talent, which this year includes Harold Mabern, Eric Alexander, Chris Potter, Bryan Lynch, Louis Hayes, and many other major talents. And even if you did get to every club in NYC, you’d never hear the artists in collaboration, as you’ll hear at this beloved annual event. Living legends you’ve followed your whole life jam with astonishing young talent. Blistering bebop, satisfying swing, voluptuous vocals, and joyful jams—the Stanford Jazz Workshop Faculty All-Stars show is one of the hottest jazz events in the entire Bay Area. ”Always a popular event.” —San Jose Mercury
