Parliamentary Awards

The All-Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group – in association with PPL and Jazz Services – held their annual Parliamentary Jazz Awards tonight on the terrace at the House of Commons.┬áHosted by Moira Stewart, alongside co-chairs Michael Connarty MP and Lord Colwyn, the stage was filled by the very top names in jazz, collecting both their awards and the acclaim of the knowledgeable audience. The legendary Stan Tracy, John Surman, Impossible Gentlemen, The Vortex, Nick Smart, journalist Rob Adams and JazzFM’s Mike Chadwick (the ‘John Peel of jazz’) were among the worthy recipients.
