Stanford Shopping Center’s 27th annual Summer Jazz Series

Michael Zilber, whom jazz legend Dave Liebman calls “one of the best composers and players around anywhere, period!”, was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. He moved to Boston, Massachusetts in his late teens and to New York City in his early twenties. He has performed and/or recorded with Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Stitt, Dave Liebman, Miroslav Vitous, Bob Berg, Dave Douglas, Rachel Z, and Narada Michael Walden, among many others.

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.
