A huge congratulations to all of the incredible artists nominated this year. Seattle is pretty much one huge band that steps up to play each person’s individual music – it’s a beautiful, dancing, organism, and we’re delighted to be a part of it all.
More about the awards – “Each year, the Golden Ear Awards recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements of the previous year in Seattle jazz. In the process, Seattle jazz fans and performers can take stock of and show gratitude for the region’s vibrant jazz ecology. The awards are determined by a combination of nominations and popular vote. Nominees this year were selected by a poll of Earshot Jazz readers, jazz performers, audience members, journalists and industry professionals. There are eight Golden Ear Award categories, including induction into the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame.”
