The SJZ New Works Fest

The SJZ New Works Fest premieres works by some of the SF Bay Area’s best musicians, commissioned by the SJZ Jazz Aid Fund. Of the 27 established and fast-rising artists that received a grant this year, nine were chosen to perform in-person sets at the intimate SJZ Break Room: Kim Nalley, ASTU, David Lechuga, Kristen Strom, Mike Blankenship, Brian Sheu, Cava Menzies, Michael "Tiny" Lindsey and Sylvia Cuenca Group, performing a special set for International Jazz Day, April 30. Tickets for these exceptional artists are just $10. Each set will be live-streamed, free, and the Fest closes with three free streams of performance highlights. Info at
