2018 Golden Ear Recipients photo by Daniel Sheehan.
Each year, the Golden Ear Awards recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements of the previous year in Seattle jazz. In the process, Seattle jazz fans and performers take stock of and show gratitude for the region’s vibrant jazz ecology. The awards are determined by a combination of nominations and popular vote. Nominees are selected by a broad range of Earshot Jazz readers, past Golden Ear recipients, jazz performers, audience members, and industry professionals. Those with the majority of nominations are included on the ballot below.
Vote online at earshot.org, by email to email@example.com, or mail your selections to Earshot Jazz, 3417 Fremont Ave N. #221, Seattle, WA 98103, by March 3. The Golden Ear Awards party takes place March 9 at the Royal Room, featuring the Marina Albero Ensemble.
