Saxophonis Lee Konitz, Sonny Rollins, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Gary Smulyan, dan Branford Marsalis masuk dalam jajaran pemenang penghargaan yang diberikan oleh Jazz Journalist Association untuk Awards tahun 2009.

Sonny Rollins dan Maria Schneider masing-masing memenangkan tiga penghargaan sekaligus tahun ini. Sementara Hank Jones dipilih sebagai pianist of the year diantara para nominator lain seperti Kenny Barron, Cecil Taylor, Ahmad Jamal dan Keith Jarrett maupun wajah baru seperti Jason Moran dan Matthew Shipp. Dengan kesederhanaannya Jones berkomentar, “seharusnya ini penghargaan kelompok”.

“Ini menjadi kehormatan buat saya dan menjadi insentif untuk berkarya lebih baik lagi”, ujar Jones yang tahun depan berusia 91 tahun. “Ini bukan akhir dari segalanya, justru ini menjadi awal untuk saya”, lanjutnya.

George Wein, produser festival jazz tertua didunia, Newport Jazz Festival juga menerima penghargaan. Meskipun era festival dengan nama-nama besar seperti Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington dan Count Basie sudah lewat, ia berkata, “Semangat jazz tidak akan mati meski mereka sudah tiada. Tapi anak-anak muda yang penuh konsep petualangan dan mencari hal-hal baru akan menjadi trend kedepannya “.
