Downbeat Critics Poll 2009

This just in, and on newstands everywhere:

That’s 10 years in a row for DD, so doesn’t that make him the Trumpeter of the Decade? Kidding. Glad for the continued recognition. Also, it’s 2 years in a row for Donny in the Rising Star category, and 3 years in a row for Nicole — we hope they both keep rising.

Congrats to all the winners and honorably mentioned.
