Ignatz and Harvey Award winner Jim Woodring will be joining Bill Frissell’s Beautiful Dreamers jazz trio onstage at the SFJazz Center on September 14. Woodring, who is best known for his surrealist comic book Frank, will be creating illustrations live while the trio perform music from their self-titled debut. In 2006, Woodring and Frissell collaborated on Probability Cloud which resulted in the duo being among the first to be honored as United States Artist Fellows. Woodring and Frissell will be taking part in two performances on September 14. The first is a Family Matinee at 2 p.m. which is intended to provide an all-ages accessible window into the world of jazz for an affordable ticket price. The full performance with Frissell’s Beautiful Dreamers and Woodring will be at 7:30 p.m.
