*Telluride Jazz Celebration to Kick Off 2008 Telluride Music Festival 
Season June 5-8*

Telluride, CO - The Town of Telluride on October 3, 2007 approved a date 
change for the annual Telluride Jazz Celebration (TJC), which will take 
place June 5-8, 2008 and kick off the town's annual summer music 
festival season. The jazz festival, which had been produced each year 
during the first weekend in August since its debut in 1977, will now 
coincide with the annual Telluride Hot Air Balloon Festival. Telluride 
will be celebrating "Jazz in June with Balloons" in 2008 as the 32nd 
Annual Telluride Jazz Celebration and the 25th Annual Telluride Hot Air 
Balloon Festival fill the air with colorful sights and sounds.

"The new June date for Telluride Jazz creates a great opportunity to 
kick off our town's summer music activities with the mountains coming 
alive with bright green aspens, colorful balloons and world class 
music," Telluride Society for Jazz Executive Director Paul Machado said.

"What a full weekend of activities Telluride will have this coming 
June," Marilyn Branch, chair of the Balloon Festival, added. "We'll have 
airborne balloons early in the morning, jazz all day, and even more jazz 
to complement the Main Street GLO on Saturday evening. What an exciting 
way to launch our series of summer festivals."

Since 1977, Telluride's majestic perch - high in the spectacular San 
Juan Mountains in Southwestern Colorado has been the site of a musical 
odyssey combining the finest of nature and art. Each year the Telluride 
Society for Jazz produces one of the most memorable festivals in the 
world. Its intimate format and many opportunities for enjoying 
spectacular mountain activities complement the superb music. Combining 
outdoor stages during the day with theater and club shows running at 
night, this festival has the best of both worlds.

The Telluride Jazz Celebration is presented by No Wasted Notes and also 
presented by Raynier Institute & Foundation, Mountain Village Owners 
Association, US Bank of Telluride and Subaru of America.
