Red Bull Music Academy presents New York City to the SF Bay: JAZZ

Grammy Award winning jazz saxophonist Gary Bartz began making waves on the jazz scene during its prime in New York City and never slowed down. Mr. Bartz was formally trained at Julliard; however, it’s the time alongside jazz greats like Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, and McCoy Tyner that has placed him as a legend in the game. R&B icon, Bilal, serves as featured vocalist for the Gary Bartz Project, and for this special night only, soul sensation and 2006 RBMA Participant, Aloe Blacc, will join them on stage.

The Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito Show was broadcast out of Columbia University’s WKCR in the early '90s and launched the careers of hip-hop legends including Nas, the Notorious B.I.G, Jay Z, and Big Pun. DJ Adrian “Stretch Armstrong” Bartos and Robert “Bobbito” Garcia turned their 1 to 5am radio show in to a launching pad for young artists on the brink of fame. Listeners tuned in weekly for the illest rhymes to hit the airwaves at the time. Legendary Bay Area DJ, Shortkut, will warm up the hometown crowd, paying homage to his contemporaries from the East Coast. 

This night will be recorded for Red Bull Music Academy Radio. Tune in at

Their name says it all – Masters At Work. "Little Louie” Vega and Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez celebrate 20 years together, shepherding dance music down new paths with their inventive production style and imaginative feel for different musical forms. The two native New Yorkers have amassed an overwhelming body of work in that time, one that includes hundreds of original productions, remixes, and side projects, redefining the way we think of music in clubs. They defiantly mix everything they can find – house, hip-hop, funk, disco, Latin, African and jazz – into a universal groove. And in doing so, MAW has become a cultural mélange unto itself, emblematic of the multicultural society in which we live.
