Yerba Buena Gardens Festival presents In the Spirit of Flying Eagle: Dr. Loco’s 75th Birthday Tribute to Jim Pepper.

Native American tenor saxophonist Jim Pepper was a jazz giant whose spirit continues to reverberate across the scene. A stellar roster of Bay Area musicians celebrate the jazz fusion pioneer of Kaw and Creek descent who forged a singular synthesis of peyote chants, powwow beats, jazz, rock, and pop (exemplified by his hit “Witchi Tai To”). Co-sponsored by American Indian Movement (AIM) West and curated by José “Dr. Loco” Cuellar, the event includes performances by saxophonists Francis Wong, Hafez Modirzadeh, Melecio Magdaluyo, Dr. Loco, and special guests. The program also celebrates musician/educator/activist/legend Dr. Loco’s 75th birthday!
