    Brad Mehldau, James Farm, Tigran Hamasyan Win ECHO Jazz Awards

    Congratulations to Brad Mehldau, James Farm, and Tigran Hamasyan, who have all been named winners of ECHO Jazz 2016 Awards. James Farm was named International Ensemble of the Year for its second album, City Folk; Tigran Hamasyan was named International Instrumentalist of the Year, Piano, for his Nonesuch Records debut album, Mockroot; and Brad Mehldau will be given a Sonderpreis ("special prize") for his eight-LP / four-CD box set 10 Years Solo Live.

    The ECHO Jazz awards are conferred by the Deutsche Phono-Akademie (German Recording Academy), akin to the Grammy Awards in the United States. The organization has handed out the ECHO Music awards annually since 1992 and the ECHO Classic awards since 1994. The ECHO Jazz prizes are the latest addition, having launched in 2010, when Bill Frisell received the inaugural award for International Instrumentalist of the Year, Guitar. Pat Metheny won the ECHO Jazz 2015 Award for International Instrumentalist of the Year, Guitar, last year.

    The ECHO Jazz 2016 Awards ceremony will take place at Kampnagel in Hamburg on Thursday, May 26, and will be televised by NDR. For additional details and the complete list of winners, visit echojazz.de.

    "Though the exact day is not known, it was fifteen years ago that Lake Street Dive became a band," says Rachael Price. "McDuck wrote our name on the chalkboard of a practice room and it was done. We didn’t know each other that well. We had zero idea of what kind of music we would play. We certainly didn’t know that fateful day marked the beginning of the longest platonic double date of my life. We have been through so much together ... Happy Fifteenth Bandiversary, y'all!"
