This year’s Scottish Jazz Awards are being held on Thursday 19 July 2012 at the Queens Hall in Edinburgh.
Most of the categories are decided from public nominations by a panel of musicians and promoters, but one, the Live Jazz award, is voted for by the public.
“Live Jazz” is a slightly odd category, as it lumps together performers, venues and festivals. I’m not sure how you’re meant to compare Havana Swing, Jazz @ Hospitalfield and the Isle of Bute Jazz Festival, but if you think you can do it, here’s a link to the entry form.
The ten nominees are:
- Brass Jaw
- Edinburgh Jazz Festival Orchestra
- Glasgow International Jazz Festival
- Havana Swing
- Isle of Bute Jazz Festival
- Jazz @ Hospitalfield
- Martin Taylor
- Ryan Quigley Big Band
- Scottish National Jazz Orchestra
Voting closes at 12 noon on Monday 2 July.
