New Works Fest

SJZ’s first-ever New Works Fest kicks off in an evening hosted by KCSM Jazz 91 Radio personality Greg Bridges. The Fest is an outgrowth of our Jazz Aid Fund initiative, which provided grants to 33 SF Bay Area artists, each to produce a new work. Tonight’s selection of artists features two of the Bay’s greatest treasures and an exciting young artist on the way up.

Segment start times are approximate, due to variations in set lengths—plan on arriving a little early to make sure you see the entire performance by your favorite artist. If you miss the premiere stream, you’ll have the chance to watch the archived concert until May 31. Once you begin watching, you have 48 hours to finish playback.
