Winners of the Parliamentary Jazz Awards
(Published: May 15, 2014)

Winners for this year’s Parliamentary Jazz Awards have been announced this week. Organised by the All Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group (APPJAG) to celebrate British jazz music, the awards are now in their tenth year.

Among the winners was Jamie Cullum, who was given the Jazz Media Award. Chris Barber accepted the Special APPJAG Award, and photographer David Redfern won the coveted Services To Jazz Award.

The ceremony featured performances by James Pearson and The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars. The Parliamentary Jazz Awards are sponsored by music licensing company PPL.

Fran Nevrkla OBE, chairman of PPL, said: “I would like to extend my personal thanks and appreciation to Michael Connarty MP and to Lord Colwyn for doing such a fantastic job in co-chairing and running APPJAG as well as my thanks to Bob Blizzard.

“I would also like to thank all the judges for their time and welcome Jon Newey, the Awards’ presenter. These Jazz Awards remain a special night for Parliament, the jazz community and award recipients as well as for PPL and the music industry generally.”

APPJAG co-chairman Michael Connarty MP said: “The Parliamentary Jazz Awards is one way MPs and Peers of all political parties aim to support British jazz by recognising and honouring the amazing musical talent we have in this country.
