Bruce Lundvall Award

Bruce Lundvall award
On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the Festival has created the Bruce Lundvall Award, which will be presented annually to a prominent non-musician who has left a mark on the world of jazz or contributed to its development, whether through the media, concert or record industry. The first person to be awarded the prize is none other than Bruce Lundvall, president of EMI’s legendary Blue Note label. An astute and dedicated administrator with a pair of ears connected directly to his heart, Mr. Lundvall has gained universal respect from his peers and the innumerable musicians and journalists who he has encountered.
