Responding simultaneously to the rapidly changing commercial record business and dwindling public and foundation support for the arts, EAC has adopted an approach to funding that integrates the aggressive pursuit of private contributions and the generation of income earned through the sale of EAC goods and services. With the support of several renowned service organizations, EAC is able to make the best use of the funds, services and expertise contributed by its dedicated allies.
In it first official year of operation, Essential Arts Concepts, Inc. has already made great strides. By integrating the elements of performance, education and recording--and soon, an all-supporting technological strategy--EAC has already established a reputation for uncompromising artistic integrity, efficient business prowess, and sensible, artist-directed enterprise. In the often-daunting world of the Jazz industry, EAC holds great promise for self-directed artists, educators and students.
