The Jazz Awards party is well-known as a popular hang for players in all jazz-related industries --the jazz record business, jazz education, festival and concert production, management, publicity and booking agencies included-- and it provides the opportunity to mingle with some of the best-informed, most articulate media experts in jazz today. Party attendees will be treated to Brother Thelonious Belgian Style Abbey Ale wine, waters, sodas and hors d'oeuvres from the Blue Note kitchen.
