Tony Williams Spotlight
Music Dir. Cindy Blackman Santana

Curated by powerhouse drummer Cindy Blackman, this night honors the work of master drummer Tony Williams, a hugely influential artist who provided the polyrhythmic fire powering Miles Davis’ second great quintet in the mid 1960s. His band Lifetime helped pioneer the fusion movement, and, in 1990, the longtime Bay Area resident premiered an SFJAZZ-commissioned work that featured himself on drums, Herbie Hancock on piano, and Kronos. We’ll revisit that work for the first time in over 25 years for this special all-star tribute concert that will also feature Zakir Hussain, Joshua Redman, and Terence Blanchard, among many others.
