March 2012 SFJAZZ Hotplate Mix

This Thursday night is another monthly installment of SFJAZZ Hotplate at Amnesia (853 Valencia Street, San Francisco), with Chloe Jane Scott paying tribute to jazz flute legend Hubert Laws. I will be getting the night started around 8pm with an hour long deejay set that will include many of Hubert Laws most notable recordings, as well as a solid selection of funky jazz gems. The evening will also include the always fascinating Front Burner multi-media session on the life and times of Hubert Laws, led by SFJAZZ Education Director Rebeca Mauleón.

Much like last month, I put together an hour long Hotplate mix that features a number of Hubert Laws classic recordings both as a leader and a sideman. I also included a couple of my all-time favorite jazz flute compositions including Ju-Par Universal Orchestra's often overlooked gem "Flute Salad" and the funky classic "Harlem River Drive" by Bobbi Humphrey. A heavy dose of funky jazz-flute action!
