Jazz FM Awards 2016
The second Jazz FM Awards will be taking place this year at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in London on Tuesday 26th April.
One of the most prestigious events in the jazz calendar, the Awards shine a light on the broad range of talent that the worlds of jazz, blues and soul have to offer and will once again feature performances from a selection of acclaimed artists and groups.
Following in the footsteps of last year's winner Hugh Masekela, PPL is delighted that record, TV and film producer, arranger, composer, musician, and instrumentalist Quincy Jones will be receiving the PPL Lifetime Achievement Award at this year's Awards.
The organisers have also confirmed Grammy Award-winning vocalist and songwriter Gregory Porter will be performing. As well as showcasing new material, Porter will also be honoured with the Impact Award, presented to a jazz artist who’s made an outstanding impression on the wider global music scene.
