Jazz artists made their token appearances at the 2002 Grammy Awards, held Wednesday night. Diana Krall looked like Elvis Costello was stepping on her foot as they introduced the song of the year nominees together on the Grammys Wednesday night. Saxophonist Dave Koz (pictured left) led the Grammy Jazz Ensemble. Natalie Cole was a presenter. Other than that, jazz fans had to sit through three-plus hours of the usual affected speeches from pop Grammy winners and cringe-worthy banter among presenters in order to squint at the screen and see if they could catch jazz winners’ names as they flashed across the screen.
Here are a list of winners in jazz-related categories for the 2002 Grammy Awards. We guarantee that they will appear on your screen for more than a millisecond.
