JACKNIFE (Jackie McLean Birthday Celebartion)

May 17 @ 9:00 pm

- $12.00 – $25.00

“One of the most accomplished young firebrands on the scene” – SFJAZZ • Saxophonist STEVEN LUGERNER continues his explorations of the music of jazz legend Jackie McLean with JACKNIFE, a hard-hitting West Coast post-bop quintet. Exploring tunes from McLean’s seminal early- and mid-1960s Blue Note albums, Jacknife brings together a formidable cast of rising talent including trumpeters JJ KIRKPATRICK, DARREN JOHNSTON, HENRY HUNG, MAX MILLER-LORAN; drummer MICHAEL MITCHELL, bassists GUILIO XAVIER CETTO, GARRET LANG, SHIMPEI OGAWA, pianists JAVIER SANTIAGO and CAILI O’DOHERTY.

Since 2016, JACKNIFE has been a staple of the San Francisco jazz scene with regular performances at SFJAZZ Center, BLACK CAT, and THE SOUND ROOM, plus residencies at CLUB DELUXE and MR. TIPPLES. Members of the group have worked with a heavyweight roster of jazz masters, including drum legends ALBERT “TOOTIE” HEATH and BILLY HART, pianists LARRY WILLIS, FRED HERSCH and MYRA MELFORD, trumpeter RALPH ALESSI, and saxophonist DAYNA STEPHENS.
