Bell Jazz Awards

I had a nice time in Melbourne last Thursday night attending the Bell Jazz Awards where my composition Minsk was nominated for Best Jazz Song. It didn't win but the same song is also a finalist in the jazz category of the International Songwriting Competition with the winner being announced April 28. The judges there are John Scofield and McCoy Tyner so it will be interesting to see how they rate my work! If you haven't heard the piece you can listen here.
