Antonio Sanchez & Migration (Episode #704H)

KQED Life: Wed, Jul 27, 2016 -- 7:00 PM

Four-time Grammy Award winner Antonio Sanchez is considered by many critics and musicians alike as one of the most prominent drummers, bandleaders and composers of his generation. In 2013 Antonio was invited by acclaimed filmmaker Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu to create the original film score for his 2014 release "Birdman." This is a very unique project that features Sanchez's drumming as the main musical ingredient in Inarritu's film. It won the Sound Stars Award for best Film Score at the 2014 Venice Film Festival.

Clifton Anderson Quintet (Episode #703H)

KQED Life: Wed, Jul 20, 2016 -- 7:00 PM

Clifton Anderson grew up surrounded by music. His father was a church organist/choir director, and his mother a singer and pianist. It was no surprise that Clifton exhibited an affinity for music at an early age. When he was just seven years old he got his first trombone, a gift from his uncle Sonny Rollins. Clifton has worked with a "who's who" of diverse musical giants from McCoy Tyner, Stevie Wonder and Dizzy Gillespie to Paul Simon and Sonny Rollins.

Benny Green Trio (Episode #701H)

KQED Life: Wed, Jul 6, 2016 -- 7:00 PM

Benny Green possesses the history of jazz at his fingertips. Combine mastery of keyboard technique with decades of real world experience playing with no one less than the most celebrated artists of the last half century, and it's no wonder Green has been hailed as perhaps the most exciting hard-swinging, hard-bop pianist to ever emerge from Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers.
