Stanford Shopping Center’s 27th annual Summer Jazz Series

Five-time Grammy nominee, Wayne Wallace, is one of the more respected exponents of African American-Latin music in the world today. He is known for the use of traditional forms and styles in combination with contemporary music, and has earned recognition with his recent placement in the Downbeat Critics Polls under the trombone and producer categories.

Mr. Wallace is an accomplished arranger, educator, and composer with compositions for film and television. He has also received grants form the Creative Work Fund, the National Endowments for the Arts, the Lila Wallace Foundation, and the San Francisco Arts Commission.

From vintage mid-1900s blues and jazz to gypsy swing and a band that promises to put the “fun” back in “funk,” this summer’s jazz season at Stanford Shopping Center’s Clock Tower Plaza looks to be a must-do for Thursday nights… at least from June 20 through August 29.

The 27th annual free (as in “no admission”) evening concert series includes performances by classic jazz and blues faves Lavay Smith and Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers, trombonist/bandleader Wayne Wallace, the gypsy jazz sextet Gaucho, saxophonist Michael Zilber, the jazz-meets-funk-meets-fun two saxophonists and a drummer ensemble Mo’Fone, San Francisco-based Brazilian Choro ensemble Grupo Falso Baiano, and a wondrous musical hybrid of chamber music with global rhythms and sounds in the music of the Musical Art Quintet.

The ten-week concert series is hosted by the Stanford Shopping Center and produced by SFJAZZ.
