The Greek Jazz band The Next Step Quintet were announced finalists of the 'Made in New York Jazz Competition' in the category 'small band'. Soon, the judges and committee will pick the three winners and announce who gets to fly to perform in New York.

“Made in Jazz New York Competition” is the first international online music competition “that aims to churn out some of the best jazz talents across the globe”. The competition committee consists of the legendary jazzists: Joe Lovano, Randy Brecker και Lenny White.

How it works: “In order to enter, contestants choose a category among these seven: solo instrumental, solo vocal, small band, big band, composer, arrangement and digital. The musician submits a video through the Internet that demonstrates his or her skills. After receiving approval from the competition committee, their video appears in the category on the Internet along with detailed information provided by the contestant.

Lovano, Brecker and White will pick the finalist in each of the seven categories. An eighth finalist is the artist who receives the most online votes from the public. Then the judges and the competition committee pick the three winners. First prize in the competition will be $3,000. (The amount grows as more people register with the site). In addition, the contest winner will be flown to New York City on all-expenses paid trip to be a headline performer at the Made In New York Jazz Festival.
