This year’s Downbeat Readers’ Poll, currently open for voting, has a number of UK-and London-based nominees listed: I spotted Kenny Wheeler, Evan Parker, Norma Winstone, John Butcher, Peter King, Ian Shaw, Edition Records and the London Jazz Composers Orchestra (on video here) as I whizzed through it. (It also, of course, has many of our regular and welcome visitors….) In every category it is possible to add your own nominee. The link to participate is HERE.
Kenny Wheeler is Canadian, isn´t he?
Canadian-born, yes. But 'London-based' as I wrote.
