About Lynn Speakman and Andrew Speight

Saxophonist, educator, and bebop master Andrew Speight was an integral part of the Stanford Jazz Workshop family for many years. He mentored countless students and colleagues, offering hours of his time without hesitation, and sharing his experience and approach to jazz. His performances at the Stanford Jazz Festival — whether headlining his own shows or making guest appearances — were always exciting, uplifting, and full of positive energy. When Andrew passed suddenly this past Fall, the entire jazz world felt the immense loss. 

Lynn Speakman is one of those artists who was profoundly influenced by Andrew’s playing and teaching. A brilliant arranger and composer as well as a virtuoso saxophonist and flutist, Lynn and a band of SJW faculty artists will present a program of music that meant a lot to the late master, as well as to all who knew him.
