FUNKDAFIED George Clinton takes the main stage at SJ Summer Jazz Fest.
SJ Jazz Summer Fest
UNK LEGEND George Clinton comes to San Jose as a part of the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest’s 28th installment. Clinton will be joined by his band Funkadelic/ Parliament during their set on the main stage. With his huge backlog across the two bands, it’s hard to say which songs they’ll opt to play. Given the legendary status of both bands and Clinton himself, though, whatever they play is bound to be a funky highlight of the festival. Across 10 stages, the three-day festival Aug. 11-13 boasts more than 100 performances in a range of genres. Past lineups have included Bobby Caldwell, Bootsy Collins and rising saxophonist and bandleader Kamasi Washington. Set to play on the Cafe Stritch stage is R&B and synth-pop six-piece The Seshen. The Bay Area group builds songs around their own combination of live percussion, electronic instrumentation and the dextrous delivery of lead singer Lalin
St. Juste. The band is sure to play songs off of their sophomore fulllength album, “Flames and Figures,” from 2016. The lineup will also bring classic San Francisco R&B group The Whispers to the festival’s main stage. The group, which has no fewer than 24 albums under its belt, will no doubt play a slew of their hits from the ’70’s and ’80’s. Representing much more than just world music is three-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist Angelique Kidjo. For this special performance, Kidjo will be paying tribute to Latin music queen Celia Cruz.
