2022 Lineup / Jazz Beyond

Programming for the SJZ Jazz Beyond series has been co-presented by Universal Grammar (UG) since 2010.

These artists have played a major role in an evolving music industry, with sounds that reflect elements of jazz, hip hop, electronic, soul, funk, afro-latin, house and R&B. San Jose Jazz and UG have forged a relationship to present Thundercat, Taylor McFerrin, B.Lewis, Miles Bonny, Sonnymoon, Knwledge, J Rocc, Karriem Riggins, Kris Bowers, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Moses Sumney and others. This year’s lineup exemplifies the modern sonic landscape that is Jazz Beyond.
