Hey Members! --

The Jazz Awards voting booth closes at noon, June 4 -- so if you  
haven't already, vote now! (be sure to take a look at the self- 
nominated "best photos of the year") --

nearly all seats for the Jazz Awards are sold -- if you want a ticket  
(at the members' $40 price) you ought to purchase one immediately at  
Jazzhouse.org, otherwise you will not get in. This goes for nominees,
