Jazz journalists honor local "Jazz Hero"
The Jazz Journalists Association held its annual awards ceremony on Saturday June 11. A new award category was added this year: Jazz Hero. According to JJA, Jazz Heroes are activists, advocates, altruists, aiders and abettors of jazz who have had significant impact in their local communities.
Honored as a Jazz Hero this year was Seattle's John Gilbreath, executive director of Earshot Jazz, radio host, artistic director of the Bellevue Jazz Festival and Seattle Art Museum's Art of Jazz concert series. Congratulations, John!
