Doors: 7pm

Rising to international attention for his work with The Roots, Cody ChesnuTT, Dave Matthews, Jill Scott, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Zion I, Martin Luther McCoy is perhaps best known for his on-screen role as the Jimi Hendrix inspired character “Jo-Jo” in director Julie Taymor’s Oscar-nominated 2007 Beatles tribute film Across the Universe. He joined the SFJAZZ Collective for the 2019 Season devoted to the 50th anniversaries of Miles Davis’ In a Silent Way and Sly Stone’s Stand!, and this event is a perfect continuation of this this theme, celebrating the pivotal musical statements that defined the turbulent times that inspired their creation.
