NYC Poll honours George Wein

Once again, I'm thanking Maurice Summerfield. On this occasion, for drawing my attention to the results of the Fifth Annual Fans Decision Hot House Poll.
Hot House is the longest running NYC Jazz mag and the first thing you must pick-up when you get there - It's their version of Bebop Spoken Here! Needless to say, we're delighted to see George Wein (pictured left) voted as the Honoree of the Year. George has connections with the UK and, on his last visit to the area, he was at Blaydon Jazz Club where he was impressed by Paul Edis - maybe Paul will, one day, be on this list.
