...A Canadian amongst Americans...
Canadian jazz flutist Bill McBirnie's recent release, Mercy, has been nominated in the USA for The 10th Annual Independent Music Awards (IMAs) in the best Jazz Album category.
Although based in the USA, the IMAs are international in scope with submissions from 70 countries across five continents. (Please note that Bill is the sole Canadian amongst the remaining American nominees in the Jazz Album category.)
Both IMA nominees and winners are determined on the basis of artistic merit and this year's judges in the Jazz category include McCoy Tyner, Arturo Sandoval and Lee Ritenour.
The IMA also provides a Vox Populi jukebox where you can listen to all of the nominees and also vote for your favourite at the following link:
With respect to Mercy, the IMAs chose to feature the track, "I'm Walkin'" (the old Fats Domino hit), with Bill McBirnie on flute, Robi Botos on piano, Pat Collins on bass and John Sumner on drums.
Finally, please note that Bill has a new web site which is located at the following link:
