Brian Blade's Life Cycles


SFJAZZ Brian Blade's Life Cycles

GRAMMY-winning drummer and composer Brian Blade presents the West Coast premiere of his new sextet project Life Cycles, in tribute to the late vibraphonist and jazz legend Bobbt Hutcherson. Originally formed in 2001 with pianist Jon Cowherd and saxophonist Myron Walden from Blade's Fellowship Band under the name Subterranean Sextet, this expanded combo took inspiration from Hutcherson, with whom Blade performed as a founding member of the SFJAZZ Collective. 

The group performs originals and material composed by Hutcherson, including his landmark 1970 Blue Note release Now!
