Welcome to the new and improved Search & Restore website! This brand new, ever-growing point of discovery for the new jazz & improvised music community exists thanks to the generous folks who donated to our Kickstarter project last year, so thank you to everyone who contributed.
There’s a lot going on here, so feel free to explore the artist pages and dig into the amazing performances we’ve filmed so far this year, as well as the venue profiles and show listings for jazz in New York City. We’ll be updating the site daily with new videos and other features, this is just the beginning.
Sincerely, we hope that you can discover something new here, witness music that you didn’t know existed, and stay connected to the incredible music being made today. So have fun getting lost in what we’ve built here, and we hope you enjoy it as it grows. Please sign up for the email list if you want to hear about the concerts and festivals Search & Restore is putting on, ticket giveaways, exclusive content, and more.
If you’d like to contribute to Search & Restore, the 501©3 non-profit organization behind it all, just click the donate button. Thank you!
Search & Restore was founded in late 2007 by Adam Schatz. It has since grown into a 501©3 non-profit organization, committed to bringing the artists and audiences of new jazz and improvised music together in new ways, while never forgetting it’s DIY roots. Search & Restore is only as strong as it’s generous supporters and committed volunteer staff, so if you fit into either of those categories…thank you!

The majority of the existing behavior is covered by Cucumber features; the code is covered by Rspec. Ideally, you’d continue to use both tools.
