Interview – Jef Stott
World music has deep roots in the multi-cultural history of the Bay Area and Jef Stott has been merging those roots with technology through live shows and over ten albums.

Sure, and here is what SF Jazz's Marshall Lamm had to say about Stott – "Jef has been instrumental in growing the successful SFJAZZ Digital Lab education program since the SFJAZZ Center opened in 2013.
