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.

Anna Fisher is right on the "money"...while advertising lobbyists, and panderers foist their "taste" and "values" by controlling the primetime media broadcasts...we must start our own venue...without the tv coverage..perhaps do it with a "netcast" that reaches far more viewers than "primetime" spin-fed "mac-grammy' TV show( did you want fries with that order?). Time to stand up and put jazz on the "front burner" and get rid of the phoney hype for the "gangstas with the grills"....nuf said....always b

Jazz is honored in the preteleviseed ceremony along with world, reggae, classical and gospel, children's and other categories that aren't "paid for" advertising. Forgive my sarcasm but after attending the pretelevised segment which was actually longer than the televised and then the televised the agenda is not secret! Money talks!
Also more voting members would help.
Highly political by any standards but getting nominated in 2006 with Third World for an album we did was very cool! Getting to attend was even better! It was their tenth nomination never winning. It is what it is and when you tune in, advertising minutes are worth more dollars and for artists, it's truly the greatest and most prestigious award we have not to mention best recognized worldwide. Last year, Herbie Hancock was honored big, first time in 50 years:
