2nd Place - National Jazz Awards 2013 / by Steve Barry

Thanks to everyone for their support both at and post the Jazz Awards over the weekend! If you missed the ABC broadcast of the finals just follow the link in this post. An absolutely humbling pleasure to hear and hang with some of the countries finest pianists, and to play with Rajiv Jayaweera and Sam Anning. Thanks also to Mike Nock, Barney McAll and Paul Grabowsky for tackling the impossible job of judging a music competition. Also massive thanks to Adrian Jackson for making it all happen, and congratulations to Joseph O'Connor from Melbourne for taking out first place - check him out! 

Coming up Tim Firth, Alex Boneham and I are playing at Brisbane Jazz Club on November 15th, The Sydney Improvised Music Association on the 22nd, Auckland's CJC Creative Jazz Club Aotearoa on the 27th and 28th, and The Jazzgroove Association on December 3, so stay tuned!
