Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards

Of course I would never expect to win anything at such a prestigious international event, but for the second year running our little Jazzman label was up for a 'Best Label' award at the Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards. Needless to say, we didn't win it, BUT we did come 4th, as voted for by YOU, and in doing so we beat some pretty hefty competition.

Obviously, I'm delighted :) as it puts into perspective our 15 years hard work since the label began. We don't have the backing of a large company, we don't have any outside investors, and we don't have a huge staff of music biz hot shots. What we do have is a small and dedicated team of music enthusiasts with great taste, driven by the desire to make the world a better place through releasing old and forgotten titles, in-demand rarities, and stuff other labels wouldn't touch with a barge pole. Thank you Fryer, Orsi, Liam, Dom, Malachi, Ben & Gavin.
