Updated: May 17, 2021
We're super proud to announce the inaugural Jazz Revelations Awards - a digital end-of-year celebration of some of the finest jazz-based musicians, albums and EPs on the scene in 2020.
There are so many artists who have astounded us throughout the year, all deserving to be recognised for their achievements.
With five categories in total, we have spent hours listening to and musing over the incredible music which has been released throughout the year and shortlisted 8 nominees per category.
We will be revealing each set of nominees over the coming days - between the 12th and 16th of December - with the winners being announced on Friday the 18th of December 2020.
The categories for the Jazz Revelations Awards 2020 are as followed...
