Full results of the DownBeat 65th Annual International Critics Poll are in the August 2017 issue of the magazine, pp. 54ff.


In the DB poll, 155 critics distributed up to 10 points among up to three choices (but no more than 5 points per choice) in each of two groups of categories: Established Talent and Rising Stars. The full list of critics on p. 64.

For Male Vocalist of the Year, Gregory Porter took the top spot, followed by Kurt Elling and then 18 others.

Here's the full list of the 20 male vocalists and number of votes for each.

Congratulations to Gregory Porter on this win!

Maybe next year, after the new KEQ album is released (early spring 2018!), Kurt will return to his rightful spot atop the DownBeat Critics Poll.
