Congrats Hannah

Thanks to Karen Steains for the pic

Congratulations to Hannah James who recently won the 2011 Jann Rutherford Memorial Award. The award is to support young female jazz musicians at the beginning of their professional careers. Hannah is a good friend of CJ, and has appeared many times on this site. Last time I heard Hannah was at Jazz Uncovered 2010 when she was playing with Olivia Henderson and Evan Dorrian and it was a truly impressive outing. Hannah has led her band recently for SIMA and others and was interviewed and performed on the Music Show on ABCRN. Nicely done, Hannah!
