WHO WE ARE
Jazz Remedy is an artistic collective with a passion for creative, improvised music also known as avant-jazz. We are currently based in Vallejo, California with supporters and volunteers from all over the SF Bay Area & beyond.
We are also members of, and fiscally sponsored by, Intersection for the Arts. Intersection provides resources, community and cultural space in order to contribute to the sustainable practices of artists and arts organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Intersection is San Francisco’s oldest alternative arts space, providing fiscal sponsorship, networking, consulting and presenting opportunities to artists.
WHAT WE WANT TO DO
Our mission is to present internationally acclaimed, creative, improvised music through concerts, workshops and other events, enabling the community to experience the work of these masters of sound and improvisation.
We desire to enhance this experience by providing educational opportunities for all ages, nurturing future audiences and musicians.
WHY WE’RE DOING IT
We believe this effort will elevate and inspire, opening a window to higher planes of thought and possibility in the minds and hearts of our listeners.
Because this music transcends cultural and artistic boundaries, it creates and unifies community, opening new pathways of inspiration, creative growth and expression.
We believe this effort will be a remedy for isolation, apathy, predictability and despair, thereby contributing to well-being and a robust, cultural quality of life.
Creative, improvised music is a discipline and dedication to be honored and celebrated. It has a rich history of artistic freedom that needs to be understood and experienced.
