We Have a Winner

Congratulations to Melissa Aldana for winning the 2013 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition.  Also congrats to Tivon Pennicott and Godwin Louis for taking 2nd and 3rd place (respectively).

If you haven't checked out the AJS review of Aldana's recording, Second Cycle, here it is.  Based on the expertise and maturity Aldana displays on that recording, I'm not surprised she won.

On edit: Here is a nice little write-up on the competition final round and the winner in A Blog Supreme.
