While they do have snacks and beverages available on the theater's mezzanine level, I would recommend eating a quick and satisfying meal downstairs at the Whole Foods within the Shops at Columbus Circle complex.

Most of the seats at this venue are plastic director's chair height style with built in arms and a footrest. Not a problem for me, but in observing the audience as I waited for the performance to begin, noticed that for some patrons, it was difficult for them to comfortably fit in the chairs since they are not adjustable in terms of width. Be forewarned and potentially spring the extra bucks for the select café style table seats down in the orchestra level if this is a concern for you or ask the staff at Lincoln Center to help find you a more comfortable location if possible.

Some of the most creative jazz we have heard in a long time. Allen is a very nice venue.

The venue was amazing, and they were obviously extremly talented. But I was disappointed that the group played for only an hour.

The SFJAZZ Collective is an all-star eight-piece ensemble that highlights the original compositions of its annually-rotating members as well as revisits and re-arranges famous compositions from past jazz masters. Having taken on jazz titans like John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Horace Silver, and Thelonious Monk in the past, the group will now explore the material of music icon Stevie Wonder, an artist outside of the jazz tradition, but one whose sophisticated song craft and timeless melodies are more than worthy of exploration. The Collective is comprised of saxophonists Mark Turner, Antonio Hart and Miguel Zenón, pianist Edward Simon, vibraphonist Stefon Harris, trumpeter Avishai Cohen, bassist Matt Penman, trombonist Robin Eubanks, and drummer Eric Harland.
