Peter Bacon reads the long list:

In the results announced last night, Iyer was named Jazz Artist and the Vijay Iyer Sextet was Jazz Group. Salvant won Female Vocalist and her Dreams And Daggersalbum (on Mack Avenue) topped the Jazz Album list. Schneider has become something of a full-time resident in the Big Band and Arranger categories, and so it was again in 2018. Eicher was named Producer of the year and ECM was the top Record Label.
Other winners I was interested to see (so often this list is predictable, and understandably so because talent is more enduring than the passsing of just another year) were: Ambrose Akinmusire (Trumpet), Anat Cohen (Clarinet), Nicole Mitchell (Flute), Mary Halvorson (Guitar) and Hamid Drake (Percussion). The late Muhal Richard Abrams was honoured in the Composer category, and the late Geri Allen was named Pianist.
