KCCK is delighted to offer this special live broadcast Wednesday, Jan. 23, at 10 p.m. of the Grand Opening Concert from the San Francisco Jazz Center - conceived as the first stand-alone building in the U.S. designed specifically for jazz performance. The show has been sold out for months, and the list of artists for this star-studded concert is long and awe-inspiring. So far these dazzling performers have signed on to our live broadcast:
McCoy Tyner / Chick Corea / Esperanza Spalding / Joshua Redman / Joe Lovano / Bobby Hutcherson / John Handy / Pete Escovedo / Eric Reed, and the SFJAZZ Center Resident Artistic Directors: Regina Carter, Bill Frisell, Jason Moran, John Santos, Miguel Zenón, plus
members of the SFJAZZ Collective: Miguel Zenón, David Sánchez, Robin Eubanks, Avishai Cohen, Stefon Harris, Edward Simon, Matt Penman, Jeff Ballard.
