The SF Jazz Collective is an all-star award-winning band comprising eight of the finest performers/composers at work in jazz today. Each year the group focuses on the legacy of one artist that has had a significant impact on music.

This year the ensemble performs new arrangements as well as original compositions inspired by the artistry of jazz legend Miles Davis. More than anyone else, Davis consistently changed the sound of jazz from the birth of bebop in the 1940s to the integration of rock approaches that gave rise to the fusion movement in the 1970s.

August Wilson, winner of two Pulitzer Prizes and a Tony Award, is widely regarded as one of the finest playwrights ever to write for the American stage. His American Century Cycle, which traces the African-American experience through ten plays, each set in a different decade, stands as a staggering achievement. Fences, the sixth play in the Cycle, revolves around the life of garbage collector Troy Maxson. When his rise through the Negro baseball leagues hit the ceiling of racial prejudice, Maxson turned away from a world of unfulfilled promises and denied opportunities.
