Selmer Paris Artist Mike Murley Wins Juno
For Immediate Release
This year the Juno Awards (the Canadian version of the Grammy’s) was held on April 21, 2013 at the Brandt Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The theme was, “It’s Gonna Get Loud!” … and it delivered – with the famous host Michael Bublé, driving viewership higher than last year, and topping out at nearly 7 million throughout the evening. The award show captured the 18-34 year olds attention last Sunday and was the third highest audience it has had on that national network.
Congratulations go out to Mike Murley, a Selmer Paris Saxophone artist who won the Juno for Traditional Jazz Album of The Year category. Said Mike on winning the award, “I am thrilled that my latest release, “Test of Time” has won the 2013 Juno Award in the traditional jazz category. As usual, there were a number of strong Canadian Jazz recordings released over the past year and I am truly honored to receive this recognition.”
The Juno Award for Traditional Jazz Album of the Year has been awarded since 1977. It began as the Best Jazz Album, later was also known as the Best Mainstream Jazz Album and then Best Traditional Jazz Album – Instrumental. It is in recognition of the best traditional jazz album nationally across Canada. The Juno Awards are bestowed annually to Canadian musical artists and bands to recognize their musical accomplishments.
