Atlanta Jazz Festival

From CL music contributor Jon Ross' new blog, Jazzlanta:

The AJC reported today on Mayor Shirley Franklin's decision to cut another 222 city jobs and a slew of recreation centers, but the reporter left out a small tidbit of large import to the local jazz community. It looks like the Atlanta Jazz Festival is no more.

Apparently a projected "$50-60 million shortfall for the fiscal 2009 year" is to blame.
