Pick: SFJAZZ Collective

[JAZZ] Friday-Saturday, March 22-23

Here’s how it works: Eight talented musicians must each write an original composition and offer a new arrangement from the oeuvre of an agreed-upon legend. They’ve covered John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk and, as experienced last year at Smith Center’s Cabaret Jazz, Stevie Wonder. This year, the octet will have a go at trailblazing pianist Chick Corea. A must-see for both jazz enthusiasts and all-embracing music fans. 7 p.m.; Saturday, March 23, 2 p.m.; Cabaret Jazz, 361 Symphony Park, www.thesmithcenter.com, $39-$59
