Expanded Format + More Music = Oasis Contemporary Jazz Awards
With jazz music moving from the limitations of radio playlists to wide open internet radio and live streaming, the music is more diverse than ever and the Oasis Contemporary Jazz Awards will reflect this exciting shift.
There will be new Award categories and new nominees and players in addition to the great music and performances of previous Oasis Awards shows.
