JJA Announces Jazz Award Nominees

It’s that time again: Nominees for the Jazz Journalists Association’s Jazz Awards have been announced. As usual, the 13th Annual edition of the Awards salutes a wide range of jazz folks, from players to broadcasters to journalists and those beyond-category “A-Team” honorees. JJA members can vote online at jazzhouse.org/vote.
