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.
San Francisco pianist-composer Jon Jang is an artist who minds history and makes history. Over the past three decades he’s created a series of jazz-infused works that celebrate, commemorate or comment on pivotal moments in the struggle for social justice, often from a radical political perspective. But Jang isn’t averse to stepping into the annals himself, whether serving as the fulcrum in the unprecedented Beijing Trio with legendary drummer Max Roach and erhu virtuoso Jiebing Chen or co-founding Asian Improv Records, a label that’s documented the creatively charged Asian-American jazz movement since its inception.
