Jazz Grammy...beautiful...this is a good time to start...the bay area is rich with dedicated jazz musicians...Doug Edwards, Avotcha and Greg Bridges have Jazz programming on KPFA 94.1 FM...they interview, give away tickets to concerts and support local musicians

what is going on with our jazz radio stations?
Comment by Anna Fisher on February 16, 2009 at 8:30pm
Yes, I agree with Christopher Morse, that we need to start our own night off Awards similar to the Latin Grammys.
Perhaps, finding appropriate commercial sponsorship is the main issue.

I like Christopher's idea-let's have a ceremony exactly like the CMA's, perhaps hosted by one of the more popular cable channels.

Anywhooo, count me in and let me know what I can do from my neck of the woods(Los Angeles).

I've just joined and read all of the 89 comments in this very lively discussion. And I agree with the consensus that this is a wonderful idea--or, I should say, group of ideas. There seem to be many differing views on what "Lets create the Jazz Grammies" really means. Does it mean creating and web-casting a separate award ceremony akin to (Dare I say it?) the Country Music Awards, only with much better music and a lot less money behind it? Does it mean persuading NARAS to present jazz awards and performances during the televised portion of their ceremony and giving Jazz recordings more consideration in such non-genre-specific categories as Album of the Year? Does it mean Web-casting and adding performances the currently un-televised award presentations? Does it mean lobbying NARAS to produce a separate, televised ceremony just for jazz? All of the above?

Any ideas about which of these approaches is most achievable, how it would be organized, or, if money is required, where it would come from?

Great idea! Anna's right but Jazz still should be brought to the forefront. I'm in, keep me posted on how I can help.

The Grammy's is like the "Old Gray Mare". She ain't what she used to be!!! m
