Vancouver, BC – CARAS and the Juno Awards have released its list of nominees and we are proud to announce that Vancouver's Brad Turner Quartet together with their latest release Small Wonder has received a nomination for Traditional Jazz Album of the Year!

Juno award winning Brad Turner is one of Canada’s most prominent, prolific and in-demand jazz artists and musician. DownBeat Magazine recently named Brad “one of the top trumpeters in Jazz today". Based in Vancouver, Brad is known mainly for his trumpet playing, but is proficient on three instruments — trumpet, piano and drums — and has recently been gaining more recognition as a world class composer and producer.

The quartets latest recording Small Wonder represents the ninth nomination in ten years for label Maximum Jazz and in early 2008 the album spent three straight weeks at the #1 spot on the Canadian Jazz Charts and has been hailed by critics “as a complete album as you will hear with great sound, great playing, and great compositions".

The 2009 Juno Awards will be hosted by comedian Russell Peters and airs on CTV on Sunday, March 29 from General Motors Place in Vancouver, BC. Congratulations to all other nominees and for a full list of the categories and nominations visit the Juno website at junoawards.ca.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
