I recently became a member of SF Jazz, and just bought tickets for some of their festival concerts in the fall:
- Gonzalo Rubalcaba Quintet
- Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer
- Sara Tavares
- Savion Glover
- John Abercrombie
I might be tempted to book a few more later, but these were the dates that I could be fairly sure of now.
Why isn't there a similar organization in Philly? There are several venues there that bring excellent jazz and world music artists, but if they worked together, they could create a lot more focus and excitement around the music.
