Since 2005 the Jann Rutherford Memorial Award (JRMA) has been helping to redress the gender imbalance in the field of Jazz performance. This has been effected by supporting outstanding young female instrumentalists and arranging mentorships for those with potential. The Jann Rutherford Memorial Award was founded in 2005 to assist in the professional development of an outstanding young female jazz musician. The Award is named in honour of the late jazz pianist Jann Rutherford, and is funded by private donations in partnership with Melbourne International Women's Jazz Festival (MIWJF), Sydney Improvised Music Association (SIMA), Extempore, Jazz Queensland and ABC Radio National. Over the years we have had 2 generous major sponsors but now must look for alternative support. So a massive fundraising concert is planned for Thursday July 12, 2012 at the wonderful new club Blue Beat in Double Bay.
