> for the ballot of the JJA"s 13th annual Jazz Awards. Only full  
> professional members in good standing (dues paid) of the JJA may  
> nominate (sorry, support and student members) up to worthy artists  
> and/or efforts in each of our 40 categories, towards creating a

> you need one again -- and after filling it out, send it please to  
> ballot committee chairman Chris Kelsey atchkesley at live.com. Have fun  
> recalling the best works of the year March 1 2008 to March 1 2009;  
> consider carefully your contribution raising the profile of  
> excellence in jazz and jazz journalism. Details of the "Photo fo the
