Jazz at the Stanford Shopping Center (and beyond)

Posted by at 2:25PM

SFJAZZsummerfest.pngEvery year, Stanford’s campus is alive with an incredible line-up of jazz during the summer. Unfortunately, most students have already left campus before getting to take part. If you are around though, you should definitely take advantage of the free (and not free) jazz concerts, jams, and other events.
SFJAZZ Summerfest Series
SF Jazz, the second largest jazz presenter in the nation, hosts a FREE summer series of concerts in our own Stanford Shopping Center. The “Summerfest” runs every Thursday from 6:00 to 7:30 PM, through August 9th, and then moves up into Union Square in the city.
The series will be hosted by award-winning emcee and radio personality Clifford Brown Jr., who’s voice you should recognize if you listen to 91.1 KCSM. If you want to tune in to hear Clifford, he hosts the Mid-Day jazz series Monday-Friday, as well as the American Jazz Countdown on Sundays on 91.1 FM.
Stanford Jazz Festival and Workshop (and JAM SESSIONS!)
Stanford’s campus will be buzzing with jazz throughout the summer with the Stanford Jazz Festival, and the Stanford Jazz Workshop, aka “Jazz Camp.” There is also a series of jam sessions taking place at the CoHo throughout the summer, 10PM-Midnight through August 2nd, tied with Jazz Camp and the Festival.
