This year, the Erasmus Jazz Award (EJP) is in its 23rd edition. That many years ago, the award was introduced by Codarts and the Friends of Codarts Foundation to stimulate young jazz talents at the start of their professional career. Three bands of students at Codarts compete for first prize. They were selected by a professional jury in the preliminary round, which took place in the venue Grounds on 6 March. There is also a separate award for best soloist.
Finalists: DHD Trio, MILD and Neon and the Deons
