Brian Wins Again

Caber Music, the Scottish jazz record label, and the whole Scottish jazz
scene are delighted to announce that Brian Kellock, Scotland's leading jazz
pianist, has been recognised for a second year in a row by scooping one of
the most prestigious awards at the glittering BBC Jazz Awards ceremony in
London.


In 2002 in a breakthrough step for any Scottish based jazz artist, Brian won
Best CD for his stunning trio album on Caber Music 'Live at Henry's', and at
this year's awards ceremony on Tuesday night he followed it up with the
coveted Best Instrumentalist award, beating luminaries like Guy Barker.


The 40 year old Edinburgh based star played a fantastic solo piece at the
awards in front of a video wall showing his hands on the keyboard layered
over black and white footage of a 40's New York skyline, before going off to
party with members of the record company Caber Music and stars such as
Michael Parkinson, Paul Weller, and Ulrika Jonson.


Brian Kellock has long been recognised as a major talent in his home town of
Edinburgh, where he has been developing his trademark scintillating style of
jazz piano for nearly 20 years, but it is a string of consistently high
quality performances on CDs released by the Scottish Jazz label Caber Music
that have been largely responsible for his talent becoming recognised by the
London centred UK Jazz industry.


Again this award represents the major strides being made by the Scottish
Jazz scene in becoming recognised as one of the strongest jazz scenes in
Europe, represented by the fact that Caber Music is the only European label
to have CDs listed in the prestigious World Jazz Albums of the Year list by
The Guardian newspaper for the last 2 years running (Trio AAB 2001, and
Colin Steele 2002).
