Brian Kellock wins Best CD award at BBC Jazz Awards 2002.

The most coveted award of the night was presented by fellow Scot and Star Wars and Local Hero actor Dennis Lawson, and the Brian Kellock Trio all went on stage to collect the award to applause from the celebrity studded audience and cheers from the Caber Music contingent who were present alongside Hugh Masekela, Clive James, Ken Clarke, Moira Stewart, and Mark Knopfler. The Trio then played a scintillating tune at the ceremony (slightly hampered by poor sound quality). A night of partying followed....The other nominees in this category were Jazz Jamaica Allstars 'Massive' , and Alan Barnes/Dave Newton 'Manhattan'. Brian was also nominated in the Best Instrumentalist category, which was won by John Surman.

Press Reaction:

"The Edinburgh based pianist won the best album award for the exuberant 'Live at Henry's'. Nobody deserves such recognition more. Kellock has been a massive creative presence on the Scottish jazz scene for years now, recognised and revered by visiting 'star' names as a star himself with the world at his feet."

Rob Adams. The Herald

"The heartiest of Herald congratulations to jazz pianist extraordinaire Brian Kellock, who won the album of the year award for his Caber disc 'Live at Henry's' at the BBC Radio Jazz Awards at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall on Wednesday night.

As well as being more than overdue recognition for Kellock's astonishing, but self-effacing, talent, it is a considerable coup for Caledonian jazz in total. Understandably cock-a-hoop are Tom Bancroft, maitre de of Caber, Roger Spence head chef at Assembly Direct, and the Scottish Arts Council 's head of music, Nod Knowles, who provided funded(sic) for both organisations. Only one other ingredient is required. Vast sales. So you know your job. You wont regret it." The Herald, Arts Page

"brilliant young regional winner...Scots pianist Brian Kellock(best album) "

London Evening Standard

This award, which was voted for by a panel of 150 jazz critics and promoters, is a major boost for Caber Music and Scottish jazz in general and represents the culmination of a lot of hard work to get Scottish talent recognised by the UK jazz scene as a whole. We, at Caber Music, would like to congratulate Brian and the Trio for this fantastic achievement.
