|The 2015 Parliamentary Jazz Media Award|
This year's Parliamentary Jazz Awards (Terrace Pavilion of the Houses of Parliament, Tuesday 10th May) and the JazzFM Awards (Bloomsbury Ballroom, Tuesday 26th April) are both taking shape.
It is announced today that Gregory Porter will receive the Impact Award at the JazzFM Awards, "presented to a jazz artist who’s made an outstanding impression on the wider global music scene." The first round of these awards - the contributions from the panel of nominators - closes today.
The Jazz FM Awards 2016 is a partnership between Jazz FM and Serious and is made possible with the support of the Grange Hotels, Mishcon De Reya, PPL, Yamaha and Denbies Wine Estate.
