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 Regina Carter was selected 'Violinist/Violist/Cellist of the Year.'

Considered the foremost jazz violinist of her generation, Carter's latest Sony Masterworks recording - Southern Comfort explores the folk music of the South. The MacArthur Fellowship ( "genius grant") recipient's curiosity, passion, and quest for beauty brought her to every stop taken on this full musical journey.
