Sasha Berliner

  • SFJAZZ Joe Henderson Lab 201 Franklin Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

A gifted vibraphonist, composer, and producer, Sasha Berliner won the prestigious Letter One Rising Star Award in 2018.  She has collaborated with Beck, Vijay Iyer, Terri Lyne Carrington, Ravi Coltrane, Jane Ira Bloom, and Tyshawn Sorey, and will release her full-length debut album, Azalea, in 2019.


In addition to her preternatural musical abilities, Berliner is an accomplished writer and social activist, having self-published an array of essays and critiques including a nationally recognized piece on sexism in the jazz world, which was covered on the PBS NewsHour and was part of a panel discussion on sexism at New York’s Winter Jazz Fest featuring Angela Davis.

Sasha is a San Francisco native though currently based in New York.

A prodigiously talented hard swinging vibes player (and drummer) who is already drawing notice in both the Bay Area and in New York City.
