The winners of the 2018 Australian Jazz Bell Awards were announced in Melbourne on Monday, with pianist-composer Barney McAll taking home three awards for the Best Australian Jazz Ensemble, Best Australian Instrumental Jazz Album and the Best Produced Album (both for Hearing the Blood). Pianist and composer Andrea Keller was awarded the Best Australian Jazz Vocal Album for her Still Night: Music in Poetry.

Saxophonist Evan Harris won the Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year category, while the Best Australian Jazz Song of the Year went to 'Judgement Day' by the jazz group Speedball (Mat Jodrell, Carl Mackey, Grant Windsor, Sam Anning, Daniel Susnjar). The winner of each category gets a monetary prize of $5000.

The traditional highlight of the evening was the induction of a new jazz legend - pianist Bob Sedergreen - into the Graeme Bell Hall of Fame.
