JazzTimes Readers’ Poll: Kurt is Best Male Vocalist & 1619 Broadway is Best New Release for 2012
Once again, Kurt Elling has been named Best Male Vocalist in the JazzTimes Readers' Poll, and 1619 Broadway – The Brill Building Project was voted Best New Release! Kurt was also a runner-up for Best Artist of the Year.
In addition, 1619 Broadway – The Brill Building Project made the JazzTimes Critics List of the Top 50 Releases for 2012.
JazzTimes calls its readers “the real experts on the best in the previous year in jazz,” and clearly they have great taste, too.
The full Readers' Poll results are here and are featured in the January-Feburary 2013 issue of JazzTimes.
This is the eighth time Kurt has topped the JazzTimes Readers' Poll, winning in 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2008, 2010, 2011, and now 2012.
As always, congratulations to all the winners — and especially to Kurt!
