The awards were hosted by Jon Newey of Jazzwise magazine, with award presenters including Darius Brubeck, Elaine Delmar and Lord David Steel.

"The Parliamentary Jazz Awards is one way MPs and Peers of all political parties aim to support British jazz by recognising and honouring the amazing musical talent we have in this country. The star studded names of this year's winners speak for themselves and we are very grateful to PPL for sponsoring the Awards" said Michael Connarty MP, APPJAG Co-Chairman.

"I would like to extend my personal thanks and appreciation to Michael Connarty MP and to Lord Colwyn for doing such a fantastic job in co-chairing and running APPJAG as well as my thanks to Bob Blizzard. I would also like to thank all the judges for their time and welcome Jon Newey, the Awards' presenter." said Fran Nevrkla OBE, Chairman, PPL.
