Homeland 獲2014年第5屆金音創作獎「年度最佳爵士專輯獎」/ Homeland won 'Best Jazz Album of the Year' by the Golden
恭喜 Vincent 徐崇育以首張爵士創作專輯 “Homeland" 獲得2014年第5屆金音創作獎「年度最佳爵士專輯獎」！
Congratulations to Vincent Hsu on winning the 'Best Jazz Album of the Year' for his debut jazz album, "Homeland," by The 5th Golden Indie Music Awards in 2014.
The Golden Indie Music Awards is one of the two major music awards in Taiwan. Unlike the Golden Melody Awards, which honor music that is mostly commercially released, the Indie Music Awards emphasize artists’ own abilities to write and produce music. For example, a contender is only qualified when 70 percent of the music on each album is written by the artist himself.
The Golden Indie Music Awards help to identify new local music talents through categories different from the Golden Melody Awards. The awards recognize outstanding musical artists and works of the following genres—rock, folk music, electronic/techno, hip-hop, jazz, and R&B.
The GIMA award ceremony was held on December 6, 2014, in Taipei. "Homeland," Vincent Hsu's debut album, brought back the 'Best Jazz Album of 2014' at the 5th Golden Indie Music Awards.
The album was produced by Vincent Hsu, and the outstanding musicians are as below:
Vincent Hsu—Double Bass
Yoran Elyashiv—Tenor Saxophone
Justin Wood—Alto Saxophone & Flute
