Nearly 60 jazz critics* made nominations for this year’s Jazz Journalists Association Awards, honoring achievements in jazz and jazz journalism from March 2009 to this month.
Nominations are being tabulated as we speak, and will be announced soon. The awards will be announced on April 15, and the JJA Awards Gala will be held this June in New York.
