Review: For the 2018-2019 season, the SFJAZZ Collective premieres innovative new arrangements of the work of pioneering Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Jobim and freshly minted compositions by the band. An all-star ensemble comprising eight of the finest performer/composers at work in jazz today, the Collective’s mission each year is to perform fresh arrangements of works by a modern master and newly commissioned pieces by each member of the band. A pioneering figure and primary creator of the bossa nova style, Jobim merged Brazilian popular song with jazz to form a new and wildly popular hybrid that captivated listeners from its inception in the 1960s to today.
