Congratulations to all the winners of the 19th annual Jazz Journalists Association Jazz Awards  listed below. Professional Journalist Members of the JJA made open nominations and Jane Ira Bloom was selected 'Soprano Saxophonist of the Year.'

Bloom's latest recording - Sixteen Sunsets is a beautiful CD featuring expressive interpretations from the American Songbook along with five compelling slow tempo original compositions. Her 15th album as leader and her first all-ballads album, Sixteen Sunsets pairs JIB with long-time colleagues Cameron Brown on bass and Matt Wilson on drums, along with an exciting new pianist we will all be hearing a lot more from: Dominic Fallacaro.
