Big Bear Music in Birmingham have announced the results of the 28th edition of the longest-standing jazz awards in the UK. The final round has been determined by a public vote, in which the public was not restricted to the shortlisted artists from the awards' nominator panel. Indeed, there are a number of artists who have made it into the final listings who were not shortlisted (SHORTLISTS HERE). There is no sponsor so there is not expected to be an awards bash.
