Grammy Nominations Announced

It’s that time of year again-no, I don’t mean when the Washington Capitals go on their second-half tear and take over the Southeast division on their way to the Stanley Cup. It’s Grammy time, that way of honoring music and musicians who have managed to cram enough copies of their discs into the nominating committee’s paws! The jazz world was nominated for several Grammys-though you’d never know it from the truncated, popcentric lists that have appeared at the usual news outlets. As a public service, we’ve combed through the nominees to bring you the categories in which jazz artists were mentioned.
