Daniel Rotem Group

  • Red Poppy Art House 2698 Folsom Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Tickets ($15-20)

Saxophonist Daniel Rotem presents new music with an ensemble featuring some of the Bay Area’s incredible horn players. The ensemble will perform new original compositions and arrangements by Rotem, as well as music off his second album, Serenading the Future.

Daniel has shared the stage with legendary artists from Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Billy Childs, and Esperanza Spalding, to Stevie Wonder, Usher, and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, and performed at acclaimed festivals including the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Playboy Jazz Festival, and the Red Sea Jazz Festival, and at famed venues such as The Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, and the Hollywood Bowl.

Interesting fact: Daniel led and narrated a jazz history masterclass and performance at the White House hosted by the First Lady, Michelle Obama, as part of International Jazz Day in 2016.

Rotem has a gorgeous fog of a tone, evoking images of vintage Ben Webster with his gorgeous gasp, and he teams it up with a creative mix as he employs violinist Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, pianist Miro Sprague, bassist Alex Boneham, drummer Roberto Giaquinto and guest guitarist Jeff Parker and vocalist Erin Bentlage for a collection of rich impressions.
