PDX Jazz is back…

As previously reported, PDZ Jazz (a not-for-profit responsible for bringing in a great Jazz Festival in the winter) was in a serious bleeding budget situation and shut down operations a little bit ago.  Thanks to Alaska Airlines, the City of Portland, and others… well, here’s what JazzPDX said about it…

Today, the Portland Jazz Festival announced that it will return this February, despite recent concerns about sponsorship and funding.  As of a couple of weeks ago, the festival was around $100,000 short of their required budget, but with help from Alaska Airlines, the City of Portland, and others, the festival will be able to return in full capacity on February 13th, 2009.

Luciana Lopez at the Oregonian offers more detailed coverage of the announcement.  Click here for her article.

Yay!
