Local jazz just got a big boost. SFJazz has announced "Hotplate," described in their PR as"a new concept from SFJAZZ that features a different Bay Area artist each month, interpreting the music of their favorite jazz legend. Generously supported by The Wallace Foundation, the Hotplate program provides new performance opportunities for local jazz talent and is set to run continuously through 2011."

The monthly series will be held at Amnesia, with an opening set by DJ Vinnie Esparza, and kicks off September 10 with Terrence Brewer playing the music of Wes Montgomery. Future Hotplates include Wil Blades playing Jimmy Smith, Joe Bagale playing Ray Charles, and Spaceheater playing Rahsaan Roland Kirk. For more info, click here.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd.
