Top 15 SD Jazz Concerts for 2011
By: Robert Bush

This list of the top-fifteen concerts was culled from more than 100 I attended this year. There were some I missed, due to personal economics, like Herbie Hancock and Return To Forever IV, but as it was, whittling those 100 concerts down to 15 was hard enough.

6. James Farm. Anthology. It’s a coop band, and the equanimity was on display. A very interesting concept in which everyone contributed material, and the solos and features were evenly distributed. Joshua Redman is the big name of the bunch, but here, he was just one of the fellas. It didn’t hurt that the other fella’s were Matt Penman on bass, Eric Harland on drums, and Aaron Parks on piano.
