Okeh artists nominated for ECHO JAZZ awards

The German Phono Academy announced the nominees of the ECHO JAZZ 2017, selected by the jury. The selection shows jazz in all its facets: In addition to newcomers you'll also encounter long established artists. 
Cultural ambassador Dr. Carsten Brosda commented:
"This year the ECHO Jazz is once again the prelude to the Elbjazz Festival, where for the first time the Elbphilharmonie plays a central role as a performance venue. The ECHO Jazz emphasizes the over-regional significance of the music city of Hamburg. My thanks go to the Federal Association of the Music Industry and also to the NDR as a media partner for their great commitment to implementing the ECHO Jazz for the fifth time in Hamburg."
