It's a little ways off yet, but the organizers at SFJAZZ are already getting revved up for the 10th Anniversary of their annual spring concert series. Here are just a few of the names they're dropping on us this year: McCoy Tyner, Branford Marsalis, Madeleine Peyroux, Bill

Frisell, Ahmad Jamal, Jenny Scheinman,

John Scofield, Branford Marsalis Quartet, Will

Bernard, Mingus Dynasty with John Handy,

Allen Toussaint, Michael

Feinstein, Brad Mehldau, Roy Hargrove, James Carter, and Kenny

Burrell. But SFJAZZ isn't strictly limited to jazz, of course, so there are some great international flavors to be sampled as well, including Malian blues-trance stars Tinariwen, Afrobeat scion Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Portuguese fado songbird Mariza, Brazilian songwriter CéU, and (apparently bipolar) Balkan Goran Bregovic's Wedding & Funeral Orchestra. For a more intensive list of musicians (as well as advance tix for collective members), go to the spring season website. -- J. Graham

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
