“I HEARD THAT:” HAPPY NEW YEAR!Rochelle Metcalfe byline‚ Jan. 09‚ 2013
Well, here we are again, kicking it in the New Year, that promises to be filled with exciting events; for me, a Jazz lover, the HISTORIC OPENING of the SFJAZZ Center, Franklin and Fell Streets! A dream realized by RANDALL KLINE, SFJAZZ Founder and Artistic Director, who has been booking jazz concerts in a variety of rented venues throughout the Bay for over 30 years, NOW, with his team, announce the first season in their new home, the SFJAZZ Center.
Kline stated, reference this momentous occasion, “We wanted to create a community gathering place around jazz. A place where Jazz can do what its always done - grow and change. Now there’s a permanent place in San Francisco where it can flourish.”
