Winter Fest: Counterpoint with Ukraine

SJZ Collective & Yakiv Tsvietinskyi Play the Music of Roy Hargrove

Fri, Mar 3

8pm Pacific / SJZ Break Room

SJZ Collective, composed of some of the Bay Area’s most prominent jazz voices, join forces with Ukrainian trumpeter Yakiv Tsvietinsky to pay tribute to the late Roy Hargrove. Since all band members double as composers and arrangers, count on a night of thoughtfully re-imagined material from the catalog of a boundary-breaking modern jazz heavyweight gone too soon.

Winter Fest: Counterpoint with Ukraine

Madison McFerrin, Followed by Karine (DJ set) & Shakolin (DJ set)

Thu, Mar 2

9pm Pacific / The Continental Bar

Utilizing her keen ear and sharp musicianship, Madison McFerrin constructs delicate, evocative soundscapes in real time. Building songs one loop at a time, her vocal phrasings and stacked harmonies reveal a musical master at work. The evening will include post-performance sets from Karine and Shakolin, resident DJs from beloved Kyiv nightclub Closer.
