After being confronted by a group of musicians looking to improve the conditions of Winter Jazz Festival this year in terms of sets, pay, and sponsorship, it has been announced that the organizers and musicians have reached an agreement. Specific details of the contracts have not been released, but ticket prices will be going up $10 from last year to help compensate. Other changes include longer sets and longer breaks.
