Grammy Reax

So, they’re in and it’s over. Brief thoughts:

Hey, Kurt Elling finally got a well-deserved Grammy! Congrats, Kurtskies!

Not sure Joe Zawinul had been making jazz anymore, but nice to see a posthumous award for a great and important musician.

There are too many R&B awards.

Sorry to see the one creative Big Band record on the list, John Hollenbeck’s, did not win. You should listen to it anyway.

Also, congrats to MTT and the SF Symphony for another Grammy for their Mahler cycle, which musically is the best one there is right now.

Hard to believe Sunn O))) wasn’t even nominated for Metal Peformance.
