In an email, George Wein wrote: "The world has changed. Would I do a festival again? Yes. The purpose of the festival would be to support the jazz community." In this changed world, promoters like Rosenbloom and Schatz also wish to support a community—or maybe even build one from scratch. They have smart and ambitious ideas. Their community begins with the musicians at the negotiating table.

Search And Restore, actually, is a registered 510(c)3 non-profit organization, not a for-profit business. But you're right to show how the Vision Festival has been able to make it work with a lot less bravado and fanfare than the still-insolvent Undead experiment.
