dear fully paid up JJA members -- voting ends tonight at 9 pm EDT on
finalists for the 14th annual JJA Jazz Awards. The ballot represents much
(not all, inevitably) of the finest music and journalism about music created
over the past year. If you have not yet voted, go to
www.Jazzhouse.org/vote (the Main Ballot on the front page, below the photo,
at Jazzhouse) and also vote for the Best Photo of the Year
If you're not fully paid up and want to renew so your vote is counted, go to
www.Jazzhouse.org/renew. Or Jazzhouse.org/join.
The Jazz Awards are being celebrated on June 14 at City Winery in New York
-- and also at "satellite parties" at the Jazzschool in Berkley, CA, at
Outpost Performance Space in Albuquerque, as hosted by Earshot Jazz at the
Triple Door in Seattle, as hosted by JJA member Mikayla Gilbreath's family
in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale, maybe in Portland, Chicago, Boston . .
-- they can be celebrated wherever YOU are, too. These parties can be quite
informal -- living rooms, kitchens, hangouts -- with streaming video/audio
from the New York event viewable on any computer, and a protocol for
communicating among all the satellite parties using Twitter. (this is a JJA
media experiment!). They can be more ambitious, but time is getting tight.
Oh, the Jazz Awards in NYC starts at 3:30 edt and ends at 6:30, so plan
according to your own time zone. To watch the streaming on your computer at
home or office, at 3:30 pm edt on June 14 go to www.JJAJazzAwards.org. It'll
be there to see.
If you want to know more about the satellite parties -- our coordinator is
Joanne Robinson Hill -- jazzfund at verizon.net. Let us know if you're
scheduling anything -- we'll send program books and who knows what else.
Celebrate excellence in jazz and jazz journalism -- invite other jazz
journalists to join you. Get in touch!
And if you haven't, VOTE --
