WATCH: Jason Moran & Live Skateboarding at SFJAZZ
This past weekend, Resident Artistic Director Jason Moran presented live skateboarding and jazz inside SFJAZZ Center's Robert N. Miner Auditorium. Ten skaters on both Saturday and Sunday night skated on a massive half-pipe that was installed inside the auditorium, while Moran and his Bandwagon combo simultaneously provided the evening's soundtrack to the sold-out crowds. The performance helped show the fascinating link between jazz and skateboarding, which is the improvisational nature of both art forms, as well as showcase the incredible unlimited flexibility of the auditorium.
The video above is just a short excerpt of the exciting groundbreaking performances that took place over the weekend. Enjoy!
