SFJAZZ, the leading non-profit jazz organization on the West Coast, has announced the dates and complete schedule for the 24th Annual San Francisco Jazz Festival. Beginning October 17 and running through November 12, the Festival will feature artists such as Sonny Rollins, Marisa Monte, the Heath Brothers, Meshell Ndegeocello, Charles Lloyd with Zakir Hussain and Eric Harland, Alice Coltrane featuring Ravi Coltrane with Charlie Haden and Roy Haynes, Ana Moura, The Django Reinhardt Festival, Pablo Ziegler, and many more. SFJAZZ will present a special pre-Festival concert by Planet Drum with Mickey Hart, Zakir Hussain, Sikiru Adepoju, and Giovanni Hidalgo on September 23.

Asked about the wide-ranging mix of artists in this fall’s 24th Annual San Francisco Jazz Festival line-up, SFJAZZ Executive Director Randall Kline commented, "The diversity of the music is really a testament to the diversity of the Bay Area jazz audience—and of visitors from all over who share that love of musical exploration. It’s their ongoing support that allows us to present artists as far apart musically as Sonny Rollins, Marisa Monte, and the Kamikaze Ground Crew in a relatively short period of time."

"That time element is something that sets the fall Festival apart from our longer SFJAZZ Spring Season, in fact," Kline continued. "Over the three weeks of the Festival, you get the feeling that every night, all over City, something exciting and different is happening. That’s a very San Franciscan feeling."
