David Hardiman and the San Francisco All Star Big Band
June 23 @ 8:00 PM PDT
Once David started teaching at City College of San Francisco, Dr. Willis Kirk began taking him to the International Association of Jazz Educators conferences. “They had a black caucus because the black musicians were not able to be a part of it in many situations, especially in the South. Jazz wasn’t taught in many schools at that time. Going to conferences, I met a lot of people from all over the country. I eventually directed the African American Jazz Caucus Big Band twice in Toronto, twice in New York, and once in Long Beach. When I retired in 2004 from teaching at City College of San Francisco after thirty years, my son, David Anthony Hardiman, also a trumpet player and teacher, took over my classes.
