2014 marks the 25th Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues, and for this episode, we heard a special live show direct from Wang. Each year, Jazztrack broadcasts the final 3 performances from the National Jazz Awards, and in 2014, the featured instrument was the guitar. Across the weekend, ten semi-finalists performed to a judging panel comprised of Mike Nock, Stephen Magnusson and James Muller.

The three finalists were Carl Morgan, Hugh Stuckey and Peter Koopman, with Morgan taking first place, followed by Stuckey in second place and Koopman in third place.

Carl Morgan will take home a prize of $12,000 and a studio recording with Jazztrack.

Thanks to Mal Stanley for bringing us a fantastic final, just as good re-listening here on the site as it was being there in the WPAC for the live event, excellent effort from the incredibly talented guitarists, and thanks to Des and Ben for such fine accompaniment, and thanks to Adrian for a great festival!

What an outstanding final which We enjoyed enormously - The three Guitarists all played superbly and choosing the winner must have been no easy task: Another magnificent Jazztrack program. Thanks to all concerned!
