BUY TICKETS – JAZZ & SOCIAL JUSTICE WEEK • FEB 3-6: A group of visionary Bay Area artists bring themes of immigration, incarceration and racial inequality into focus during this inspiring week of new works.

A drummer, educator and bandleader of the first order, San Francisco-raised Jaz Sawyer has worked with many of jazz’s most formidable artists, from Wynton Marsalis, Abbey Lincoln, and George Benson to Bobby Hutcherson, Jacky Terrasson and Dee Dee Bridgewater. He has worked with SFJAZZ as a performer and educator for many years, going back to the SFJAZZ high school program before the inception of the High School All-Stars. In his latest collaboration he joins forces with San Francisco’s eighth poet laureate, Tongo Eisen-Martin, a spoken word powerhouse utterly at home in improvisational settings.
