junoWe are proud to say that out of the 35 classical and jazz albums nominated for JUNO awards in 2013, our hardworking crew of CD reviewers has already reviewed 26! Kudos to them and to our intrepid DISCoveries editor, David Olds. Has any other publication been so diligent and prescient?

Here are the nominees in the classical and jazz categories, with embedded links (in blue) to related reviews already published in The WholeNote. Several of them are contained in Editor’s Corner and Jazz, Eh? One review is part of Strings Attached, another can be found in It’s Our Jazz.
