Every year at the National Jazz Festival in Tauranga, the Jazz Tui (our version of the Grammy Awards) is awarded. This year’s nominees were Jonathan Crayford ‘Dark Light’, Dog ‘Dog’ and The Jac ‘Nerve’– all of which were recorded on Rattle Jazz. You’ll be able to read more soon in New Zealand Musician (where I profile each nominee, and rave about how wonderful each album was), however, this year’s Tui went to Dog for their debut self-titled album ‘Dog’. Many well-deserved congratulations to Dog on their win.
