Jazz UK to cease publication immediately.

Jazz Services has issued the following press release:
Following the withdrawal of its NPO status in the last round of Arts Council England funding, Jazz Services has been working hard both internally and externally.  This has involved consulting with the wider public, continuing its encouraging discussions with the Arts Council England and other related parties and most recently undertaking a comprehensive organisational review.
These results of these activities have informed several key decisions about the organisation’s present and future endeavours, and to coincide with its 30th anniversary in 2015, Jazz Services is now developing a new and revitalised business model that will ensure it can continue working with and for the UK’s jazz scene beyond the end of March next year.
While yet to be finalised, the new Jazz Services model will place a greater emphasis on artist and audience development, working in partnerships with related organisations and groups to offer a more rounded support network to artists throughout their careers as well as contributing towards a healthy live scene for both artists and audiences.
In the coming months Jazz Services will be concentrating its energies on ensuring that the organisational redevelopment process goes ahead in the most efficient way possible.  Jazz Services’ core delivery programmes – such as its funding schemes and preparation for April’s Jazz Ahead 
event – will continue as normal until the end of the current funding period, but as part of the immediate streamlining process the current incarnation of Jazz UK has ceased publication effective immediately.
