The Parliamentary Jazz Awards celebrate the diversity and breadth of the jazz scene within the United Kingdom. The awards are organised by the All Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group (APPJAG), which is co-chaired by John Spellar MP and Lord Mann. On the aims of the award, John Spellar, Alison Thewless MP and Chi Onwurah MP commented: “These awards are a great opportunity to celebrate the talents and energies of the great musicians, educators, promoters, and journalists who keep jazz flourishing, in spite of the challenges they faced in 2020.”
