Launched by SFJAZZ in San Francisco in 2004, the award-winning group is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Sly & The Family Stone’s multi-platinum classic Stand! and the Miles Davis fusion landmark In A Silent Way. Released respectively in May and July 1969 by a pair of artists connected by mutual respect, inspiration, and commitment to artistic exploration, both albums were beacons of hope and new possibilities during a turbulent time in American history. Each member of the SFJAZZ Collective has arranged songs from both albums.

The SFJAZZ Collective’s mission is to perform fresh arrangements of works by a modern master. Through this pioneering approach, simultaneously honoring music’s greatest figures while championing jazz’s up-to-the-minute directions, the SFJAZZ Collective embodies the SFJAZZ organization's commitment to jazz as a living, ever-relevant art form. Over their fifteen-year existence, the SFJAZZ Collective has honored the music of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Horace Silver, Stevie Wonder, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, Michael Jackson, Miles Davis, and Antonio Carlos Jobim and has created over 100 new arrangements and original compositions.
