Patti Austin Live in San Francisco Jazz Gala 2015
Music legend Joni Mitchell will receive the honor for her artistic vision and contributions to modern music from Wayne Shorter.
Led by musical directors Brian Blade and Jon Cowherd, the Gala concert will feature special guests like Patti Austin, Kris Kristofferson, Joe Jackson, Kurt Elling, Tom Scott, Mark Isham, and Laurie Antonioli interpreting Ms. Mitchell’s groundbreaking work. The SFJAZZ Collective will also debut new arrangements of Joni Mitchell compositions. Other musicians appearing in the concert include Greg Leisz, Melvin Butler, Marvin Sewell, Kelly Jones, Christopher Thomas, Aaron Embry, and Jeff Haynes. Hope to see you all there at the SF Jazz Gala.
Following the Gala concert, guests will be treated to a late-night supper and musical performances by Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue plus the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars.
