David Murray and the Class Struggle Band

Jazz Remedy is excited to present tenor sax & baritone clarinet master David Murray and his Class Struggle Band! David will feature his son Mingus, on guitar, and round out the band with a special mix of Bay Area friends for an unforgettable evening of music.

Mr. Murray, an Oakland native now living in NYC and Europe, has enchanted audiences around the world with his rocket-fueled streak of sonic creativity. His music defies genre boundaries, weaving a unique tapestry of sound. A co-founder of the historic World Saxophone Quartet with Hamiet Bluiett, Oliver Lake and Julius Hemphill, he has played with Bobby Bradford, Arthur Blythe, Stanley Crouch, Cecil Taylor, Dewey Redman, Sunny Murray, Tony Braxton, Don Cherry, Lester Bowie, Frank Lowe, Jerry Garcia, Max Roach, Randy Weston, Elvin Jones and many others. David is a masterful musician who can cast a spell with every note!

The Tasting Room at Vino Godfather Mansion provides a gracious and intimate setting to enjoy David’s captivating sound. Vino Godfather wine and light food will be available for purchase. Seating is limited, so get your tickets early.

Why Jazz Remedy?
 The full range of music that some call “jazz” is rarely heard by anyone who isn’t already an aficionado. That’s where the “remedy” comes in. Jazz exists in more flavors and colors than the average listener is aware of. 
Avant garde jazz / creative music is an awakening to the range of sounds, textures, and emotions that disciplined, improvised music can create.

These concerts are also a “remedy” for the worries of daily life, and a reminder of the spiritual bond of the human community.

Our desire is to present high caliber creative music, workshops and collaborations, that enrich, educate and empower others to express art at the highest level, and to provide an opportunity for folks to gather together, be uplifted and celebrate the beauty of life and the artistic soul in each of us.
