Anthony Brown's Asian American Orchestra
SANJU: 30 Years of Asian American Jazz

Anthony Brown's GRAMMY nominated Asian American Orchestra presented SANJU: Celebrating 30 years of Asian American Jazz on September 11, 2011 at Yoshi’s San Francisco. Smithsonian scholar, composer and percussionist Dr. Anthony Brown and bassist, composer and Emmy Award winner Mark Izu have been musical collaborators for over three decades and performed together at the first Asian American Jazz Festival (AAJF) held thirty years ago in September 1981.

An exhibition curated by Nancy Hom of original silkscreened posters, photographs and other memorabilia from the AAJF's archives were displayed in Yoshi's SF Lobby, and a free symposium on the first AAJF including the co-founders and curators was held in the Jazz Heritage Center. SANJU also honored 89-year old retired historian, musician, and educator George Yoshida, who played jazz in WWII Japanese American internment camp bands, has been a mentor and role model for Brown and Izu, and performed with the Asian American Orchestra.
