The ECHO Jazz is a German music prize, an Echo Music Prize for personalities and production of jazz. It has been awarded by the Deutsche Phono-Akademie (de) annually from 2010.

The awards have been given in thirty categories, including ensemble of the year, male and female singer of the year, record label, and lifetime achievement. In 2012 the criteria for entry included album release date and "two outstanding reviews from music journalists." Conductor Claus Ogermann was given the ECHO Jazz Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.[1] Awards are decided by a twelve-member jury based on critical and commercial appeal.[2][3]
