Can I decide who will be the best Latin Jazz album??? I like that Idea!!!

There should be a Male and Female Vocalist category, Big Band, small combo, instrumentalist, etc. Bring the Great American Songbook back to the USA. Our greatest asset, as a country is our music. More Jazz, please. More Great American Music. Then, maybe I'll watch the Grammys.

I love, love this idea. Why not. it is just not appreciated enough. Let's go I'm ready to get started.

Alexander Zonjic is also hosting the Canadian Smoothjazz Awards in Toronto in April. so maybe this jazz grammy thing is already in progress, just has to be expanded and done in a higher profile. The canadian Awards are not restricted to Canadian players, check it out. http://www.smoothjazznow.com/csja_nominees.htm

What a fantastic idea. I would love to be a part of this jazz effort. Detroit also only has one jazz station on the radio. Mr. Alexander Zonjic (flute) is one of the morning hosts. He would be a great resource. He is partners with Mr. Frank Taylor from the Frank Taylor Resturaunt Group. They own Seldom Blues and other venues in the area. Both are great sources of information and ideas. Anything I can do to help this effort you can count me in.

Tell me if this makes sense or not.

The bottom line is many of us on TJN could organize and produce a Jazz Grammies. I would love to do it myself. It is not that difficult. Just set up the advetising/publicity, pick the categories, pick a date, book the venue and line up the talent to perform. The difficult part as usual is funding.

Given that the jazz market is still (please don't flame me when I say this) a niche market it will be difficult to find sponsors - especially in this economy.

To me the obvious place to start is to find out how many of us on TJN are members of the Recording Academy. Perhaps form an on line committee or group?

Then we need to make sure all TJN has our contact info. Then folks could send comments and concerns about the producing of a Jazz Grammies to each of us and we would in turn share them with our local chapters.

If there is enough interest then theoretically the local chapters would send them to the national office.
