Here's the statement that Jason Orr posted on the Funk Jazz Kafe website (http://funkjazzkafe.com/2011/07/07/sad-cas…)
Clearly the Creative Loafing article does not reflect what Jason Orr wanted to express.
Sad Case Of Irresponsible Journalism By Creative Loafing
By FJK AdminPublished: July 7, 2011
Wow. It’s appears that Creative Loafing chose the low road position in analyzing and journaling the accomplishments of FunkJazz Kafé and founder, Jason Orr. Therefore we are releasing the following statement:
“The cover article featured in the Creative Loafing publication written by Rodney Carmichael displays a form of commercial entertainment satire instead of truth and substance about FunkJazz Kafé. Their story unfortunately is misleading, misguided, misquoted, and does not reflect the true essence of the upcoming screening “Diary Of A Decade” documentary film. The primary purpose of this article was to express the interest and foundation of FunkJazz Kafé, along with the tenacious efforts in creating the documentary “Diary of A Decade”. Instead, the article conveys a much deeper insidious connotation to the brand by misinterpreting the concept of the documentary as being a controversial/conspiracy film; which is false. It further reflects an ambiguous view to the image, brand, and reputation of Founder and Creator of FunkJazz Kafé, Jason Orr. We at FunkJazz Kafé denounce the erroneous, irresponsible statements made in the article and will not associate the brand with this misleading article.”
Come see “FunkJazz Kafé: Diary Of A Decade” for yourself.
