This album was a long time in the making and my co-conspirators and I gave it our all. We are beyond thrilled that it’s gotten this kind of recognition! Needless to say, it’s an incredible honor — all the more so to be considered alongside such eminent nominees! It’s been a very good year for bigband albums and the strength of the nominated recordings is a testament to that.
The awards take place on Sunday, January 26, 2014. Best wishes to the many worthy nominees! Perusing the full list, it’s actually a pretty solid year for the Grammys, with many pleasant surprises! It’s always refreshing to see good work get some love.
