Hey JJA members -- the final ballot to choose recipients of the 2010 JJA
Jazz Awards is now up at Jazzhouse.org -- so are the submissions for Photo
of the Jazz, and the semi-finalist ballot for that category -- and tickets
to the Awards gala on Monday, June 14, from 3:30 to 7 at City Winery, New
York City, are now on sale -- go to Jazzhouse and hit the button "Get
Tickets" to make your reservations. (You'll see the link for the ballots in
red at the bottom of the box that reads "2010 Jazz Awards").
Members in good standing of the JJA can buy up to two tickets for $75 each
to participate in the Awards presentations and "A Team" inductions, and
enjoy the beer, wine, food and music reception immediately following.
Tickets to the Awards and reception are available to the general public for
$150 each, and for the reception ONLY for $75. Nominees for Jazz Awards must
register their reservations at the Ticket site, and can buy a ticket for one
companion for $75.
The submissions for Photo of the Year, organized by John Abbott, look
stunning -- the 2010 Jazz Awards nominees are an estimable crew -- and the
Jazz Awards party is going to be fun, with Brother Thelonious Belgian Ale
plentiful, pianist Ayako Shirasaki (for Jan Matthies Music Management), Tia
Fuller (from Mack Avenue Records) and the Bobby Sanabria Big Band (several
supportive groups) scheduled to perform -- more aritsts tba!
Go to www.Jazzhouse.org, vote, make your reservations, and also please
support the Jazz Awards by tweeting and posting about it to facebook. We
want to raise awareness of jazz, of nominees, of the the Jazz Journalists
Association, of the Jazz Awards -- and you'll be raising your own profile
while you do so (be sure to post to social media about where to find your
articles when they come out -- doing so can vastly increase readership).
If you're NOT CURRENTLY A MEMBER of the JJA, please go to
http://www.jazzhouse.org/noff/index.php?page_id=30 and pay up -- then your
vote will be counted and you can come to the Awards with the members'
More news -- about the A Team, about the new JJA News, about Jazz Awards mc
Terrance McKnight and other bands performing at the event -- to follow.
