An array of international stars came together for last night’s Jazz FM Awards with OANDA, which took place via livestream from Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in Soho. Presented by Marcus Brigstocke, the ceremony celebrated the breadth and diversity of the thriving global scene and saw awards presented to Philip BaileyCharles Lloyd, Binker Golding, Jazz Re:Freshed and The Vortex Jazz Club.

There were surprise performances from double winner trumpeter Yazz Ahmed and vocalist of the year Judi Jackson plus breakthrough saxophonist Xhosa Cole.

The evening’s high profile special awards went to superstar pianist and educator Herbie Hancock - who celebrated turning 80 this year by picking up The PPL Lifetime Achievement Award, multi-platinum-selling US singer Norah Jones was presented with The Impact Award and the distinguished vibraphonist Orphy Robinson MBE was in shock as he won The Gold Award.

A host of stars turned out to present awards - including the likes of Jamie Cullum, Hugh Laurie, YolanDa Brown, Robert Glasper, Clarke Peters, Alexander O’Neal, Kandace Springs and Tom Misch.

Nick Pitts, Content Director Jazz FM:

“That we were able to put an event like this together in such tumultuous times is a reflection of the excellent work of our team at Bauer but it also displays the strength and resilience of the jazz community as a whole and hopefully provides a much-needed boost to everyone who works within it. I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved here and congratulations to all of the worthy winners.”
