Hedonist Jazz - Grammy Award Nominations 2011

Hedonist Jazz - Grammy Award Nominations 2011

About the show

Playing tracks by

Gregory Porter, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Vijay Iyer Trio, Freddie Cole, Trombone Shorty and more.

The announcement of Grammy Award nominations earlier this month featured some unexpected nods in the jazz world.

Chief among them was the inclusion of bassist and singer Esperanza Spalding among the five acts nominated for Best New Artist. Her inclusion is a remarkable indicator of how many people she's reached, especially for a musician rooted in jazz sensibilities and training.

The Stanley Clarke Band and Trombone Shorty being just two nominees for the Best Contemporary Jazz Album. While Best Jazz Vocal Album sees Dee Dee Bridgewater, Freddie Cole and Gregory Porter make the grade.

This show is my take on the best of this year's nominations from the jazz categories.. and a stab at guessing the winners.

Good luck to all of you.... and keep on doing what you're doing!!
