The Riverfront Times today announced the list of finalists for the 2012 RFT Music Awards.
This year's nominees in the jazz category include pianist Peter Martin, guitarist Dave Black, singer Denise Thimes, and saxophonists Hamiet Bluiett and Dave Stone. The Funky Butt Brass Band were nominated in the soul/funk category, which this year seems to be dominated by instrumental groups rather than vocalists.
Riverfront Times readers will have the chance to vote online for their favorites between now and Saturday, June 2, the date of this year's RFT Music Showcase (additional details TBA). You can see the entire list of 125 nominees in 25 different categories here.
