IPO Recordings is pleased to announce that Roger Kellaway's “Heroes" CD has been awarded the “Best Record Of The Year" in the “Classic Jazz" category by the French Jazz Academy.

The French Jazz Academy Awards is the oldest and most serious music awards ceremony in France (it was created in 1955 !) The college of voters is made up of 60 independent journalists, photographers, writers, radio and TV producers.

The award ceremony event, similar to the Grammy Awards, will take place on Monday, January 7, 2008 at the Grand Foyer of the Chtelet Theater in Paris, France.

Roger Kellaway had this to say about receiving this award.

What a great honor it is to receive “Le Prix du Jazz Classique" for my latest IPO CD, Heroes.

My guitarist, Bruce Forman; bassist, Dan Lutz and I give a warm and heartfelt thank you to the French Jazz Academy and its members. Now, of course, “Heroes" becomes a “memorial dedication" to the late and great pianist, Oscar Peterson.

My thanks to Guy Chauvier and his “Classical Jazz Committee". Also, my thanks to Academy President, Francois Lacharme, for his hospitality. I look forward to renewing our friendship. I will see you all in Paris for the January event! Into The Light, Roger Kellaway Roger Kellaway Heroes.

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.
