Welcome to the 2018 JazzTimes Readers’ Poll. Please choose your favorite artist, group or title in each category. If your favorite isn’t listed, you may write your selection in. If you don’t feel comfortable voting in a particular category, skip it. When considering your selections, focus on the events and recordings of January through December 2018. The results of this poll will be published in our March issue.
Please note that ballot-stuffing will not be tolerated; any ballots that appear to be fraudulent will not be counted. Only one response per reader is permitted. If you’ve contributed to JazzTimes Magazine or JazzTimes.com, do not participate; an expanded critics’ poll will be sent to contributors. If you assisted in the creation of an album, book, or film in any way—as a producer, publicist, artist manager, etc.—please refrain from voting for that work; we also ask that industry folks not vote for their clients in the instrumental categories.
