May 25th, 2011 | By

Congratulations to John Fordham, writer for The Guardian (UK), named Jazz Journalists of the Year by the Parliamentary jazz Awards. A 30-year veteran of the profession, Fordham comments on a broad range of music and has published several books, most recent of which is Jazz Heroes.

His citation notes his “finely honed critiques and observations,” continuing to say he has a “broad-church approach to jazz and an open mind.” Cheers to Fordham from the JJA.

    The jazz writers such as John Fordham and those around the world set the bar very high. As a new South Pacific blogger on Jazz I will try to add something of value to the mix. – Jazz Local 32
