Jason Moran squareThe Future is Now!

Reverence for jazz’s pantheon of veteran masters should never blind us to the wealth of brilliant young musicians busy expanding the music’s frontiers, responding to the present moment with highly personal sounds crafted from an ever-increasing array of sources. This triple bill, essentially a mini-festival within the festival, showcases three extraordinary young bandleaders who embody the way the best musicians assert an individual vision by absorbing Gretchen Parlato and distilling a multiplicity of influences.

This season the accent is on youth, with a bevy of brilliant young bandleaders including  iconoclastic pianist/composer Jason Moran, whose supremely resourceful trio The Bandwagon is joined by guitar star Bill Frisell; Thelonious Monk Competition winner and bossa nova-besotted vocalist Gretchen Parlato; and the sensational Cuban drummer/composer Dafnis Prieto, leader of the kinetic Si o Si Quartet with Dafnis Prieto Berkeley-raised multi-instrumental magician Peter Apfelbaum.

You can find more information on these performers and their bandmates on this special page. Please purchase your tickets now so you won’t miss this look at the new faces of jazz, the keepers of the flame.
