Bebop Spoken There

Victor Wooten: "People don't expect to have bass players get together and sound like music and not just like a bunch of elephants" (JazzTimes April, 2022)

The Things They Say!

2017 British Jazz Awards - Results Announced

After receiving votes more than 5000 jazz fans up and down the country, we are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 British Jazz Awards.

Now in their 31st year, the British Jazz Awards were established to give the array of talented jazz musicians in this country they deserve by allowing the gig-going, record buying public on they thought the best performers, bands and releases were in the last 12 months, via post and an online survey.

The four nominations in each of the 16 categories were selected by a group of respected figures within the Jazz community, a list of whom is included below. In addition, voters had the chance to vote for any musicians not nominated who they considered worthy of a placing as a ‘write-in’ vote – the highest placed of these from each category are included in the final listings.
Despite the sustained excellence of all of the nominees over years (and in some cases, decades), a majority of last year’s winners failed to make it two in a row, with Freddie Gavita picking up the Trumpet award for the first time and The Nigel Price Organ Trio doing likewise in the Best Small Group category. In addition, Rory Ingham walked away with the hotly contested Rising Star award, given to the best up and coming musician under 25.

Lastly, this year’s Services To British Jazz Award was given to Chris Barber, in recognition of his managing to keep his Big Chris Barber Band on the road for nearly seven decades, through straightened economic times and seemingly without thoughts of retirement.

With Thanks to our Nomination Panel:

Sue Edwards (Manager/tour organiser), Jill Roger (Director: Glasgow Jazz Festival), Phil Meadows (Musician/educator/band leader), Laurie Burnette (Managing director:www.jazzlondonradio.com), Lance Liddle (Bebop Spoken Here), Dave Cottle (Swansea International Jazz Festival), Chris Hodgkins (Musician/Broadcaster), David Nathan (National Jazz Archive), Denny Ilett (Bristol International Jazz and Blues Festival), Fred Lindop (Swanage Jazz Festival), John Billett (JBGB Events), Peter Vacher (Jazz Writer), Ron Simpson (Jazz Rag).
