14th Annual

Jazz Journalists Association Jazz Awards Gala

City Winery

155 Varick Street

June 14, 2010

 

 

 
Emerging new jazz talents and acclaimed stars, recording debuts and albums of historical importance, events producers, liner note writers, photographers, broadcasters and lifetime achievers in jazz journalism -- all are nominees up for consideration in the 2010 Jazz Awards, an initiative of the Jazz Journalists Association. 
 
The JJA, a non-profit international professional organization of more than 300 writers, photographers, broadcasters and new media producers, today posted finalists in 41 categories of excellence in music-making, presentation and documentation for 14th annual Jazz Awards at its website JJAJazzAwards.com. Winners of the Awards, determined by a poll of JJA professional members in good standing, will be announced and celebrated at a gala afternoon event on June 14, 2010 at City Winery, New York. 
 
Darcy James Argue, a 35-year-old Canadian-born composer and bandleader living in Brooklyn, is a first-time competitor named in five categories (Up & Coming Artist of the Year, Composer, Arranger, Big Band for his Secret Society and Record of the Year released between March 1 2009 and February 28 2010, for Infernal Machines). Other nominees for multiple awards include pianist Vijay Iyer (Musician of the Year, Composer, Record for his trio's Historicity, Small Ensemble and Pianist), reeds specialist Henry Threadgill (Musician, Composer, Record for This Brings Us To, Vol. 1 and Small Ensemble for his band Zooid), alto saxophonist Steve Lehman (Composer, Record for Travail, Transformation and Flow, Alto Saxophonist) and Maria Schneider (Composer, Arranger, and Large Ensemble for her Maria Schneider Orchestra). 
 
Five out of six finalists for Lifetime Achievement in Jazz (Muhal Richard Abrams, Jimmy Heath, James Moody, Wayne Shorter and Randy Weston) are already National Endowment of the Arts Jazz Masters, and one (drummer Paul Motian) has been a fixture on the New York scene since recording in pianist Bill Evans's trio at the Village Vanguard in 1961. Trumpeter Freddie Hubbard's posthumously released Without A Song: Live in Europe 1969 is competing against The Complete Louis Armstrong Decca Sessions (1935 - 1946) and Ella Fitzgerald's Twelve Nights in Hollywood and three other contenders.
 
"The finalists for 2010 Jazz Awards reflect the depth of talent and breadth of styles that jazz encompasses today," said Howard Mandel, president of the Jazz Journalists Association, about the ballot. "Highly creative octagenarians such as Roy Haynes, Tony Bennett, Ornette Coleman, Lee Konitz, Bill Holman, Frank Wess, Bucky Pizzarelli and producer George Wein -- are celebrated alongside new generation musicians like Argue, Iyer, Lehman, composer John Hollenbeck, saxophonist Miguel Zenón, bassists Esperanza Spalding and Linda Oh, singer Gretchen Parlato, banjoist Bela Fleck, flutists Jamie Baum and Nicole Mitchell, clarinetist Evan Christopher, violinist Jenny Scheinman and producer Brice Rosenbloom. This suggests undiminished strength in an art form that's still less than 100 years old."
 
The JJA Jazz Awards are the only honors bestowed by any organization in the United States of excellence in jazz journalism. This year for the first time JJA voters will select a Blog of the Year along with Website, Periodical, Book, Best Liner Notes, Feature and Review Writer, Photographer, Broadcaster and a recipient of Lifetime Achievement in Jazz Journalism (won in 2009 by Mike Zwerin of Bloomberg News and formerly the International Herald Tribune, who died on April 2, 2010). Nominees this year for this prestigious Award are writers Stanley Crouch (New York), Paul deBarros (Seattle), Don Heckman (Los Angeles), Bill Milkowski (New York), and W. Royal Stokes (Elkins, W. Virginia, formerly of Silver Spring, MD).
 
Nominations for the JJA's Jazz Awards were filed by 60 JJA members over a month-long voting period; these nominees will be presented to the Association's entire membership, along with Photo of the Year entries (to be announced and posted atJJAJazzAwards.comon May 3) for a second voting round. The Jazz Awards themselves, engraved statuettes, have become objects of admiration since the Awards were launched in 1997. 
 
The JJA's Jazz Awards gala, a fundraiser, will include introduction of a new coterie of "activists, advocates, aiders and abettors of jazz" who comprise the JJA's "A Team." The Awards event, to be MC'd by Terrance McKnight of WQXR-FM, will comprise both the Awards announcements and a reception featuring refreshments including Brother Thelonious Belgian Ale and wine produced on site at City Winery. Tickets will go on sale on May 3.
