On Friday, Kevin Coelho ‘17 will celebrate the release of his second album, “Turn It Up,” with a performance at Dinkelspiel Auditorium. For Coelho, the album represents his continued artistic growth, growth which has had a home at Stanford for the past seven years.

Fresh off a fantastic show earlier this month at the Stanford Jazz Festival, jazz saxophonist Chris Potter sat down with Intermission to discuss influences on his work, his experiences as both a bandleader and a sideman and the demands of being creative.
Intermission: You play around with lots of people, as a sideman and a bandleader. What’s the trade-off between getting new ideas and really understanding and communicating with a core group?
From June 22 to August 10 this year, the 41st annual Stanford Jazz Festival will play host to some of the biggest names in jazz. It opened with a sold-out solo performance by Herbie Hancock and will close with Chucho Valdes. The Daily took a look at some of the most compelling scheduled performances.
