Each year the Nashville Jazz Workshop presents the Jazz Heritage Award to someone who has promoted excellence in jazz.
This year’s award went to guitarist Andy Reiss. Andy has been a mainstay of Nashville’s jazz scene for many years. An in-demand session player, Andy has been a link between NJW and many of Music City’s most esteemed musicians. He’s influenced countless developing players and has regularly taught and performed at NJW. A founding member of the Time Jumpers, Andy is also a member of the Lori Mechem Quartet.
The Nashville Jazz Workshop is a non-profit organization supporting jazz musicians, jazz fans, and the jazz community with classes, public performances, and special events. Donate to help NJW.
