Jazz is one of the mothers of all music! Why not Grammys?

I am an active member of NARAS, that host the Grammy's and as many of us that are members should take a stand and sign a petition in support of Jazz involvement during the Grammy's awards/performances. We can talk about, but we need to have our voices heard, there are contacts available on the Grammy's site, just don't stop at that, contact Society of Singers, Jazz Society of America, Musicares, get all of these organizations involved and behind our efforts and causes.

Peace, Love and Harmony

The Jazz Grammy's are a wonderful idea whose time has been long overdue. While it is easy to "say" an award is NOT the reason gifted souls share their visions...they DO encourage and inspire many people. In addition, they present and opportunity to further expand an audience...expand followers and supporters.

JB... I'd like to see a more informed, and astute audience in front of me, and more of them... when I hit the bandstand. Do awards shows build audiences?

Who IS Herbie playing/working in front of these daze? We know HH aint coming forth unless it is good, good cake. He won one of the most important Grammy (to me) because... lo and behold, it aint jive. It's actual substance music.

I hoped, and still do that it will translate into higher pay for all of us. It hasn't... yet, around my way. But hey, they honored "America's Music" by awarding one of its living greats. America went on to elect a man with African ancestors whom Herbie happened to be openly supporting.

Keep swingin',

Certainly fame and fortune is not the direct goal. It is recognition.

But with televised recognition on a major awards show like the Grammies (or "The Jazzies"?) comes more exposure of our art to more people who might not be hip to it.

Which means there is a chance that more jazz records and downloads are sold. And if that happens enough, fame and at least some fortune would come to more jazz artists.

Perhaps we could start making a living playing jazz instead of wasting our chops in some wedding band. Perhaps we could give up the day gig and spend the time needed to, as Esquizito says, focus and better our music.

Jeez, I sound like such a Polyanna. Oh well, where there's jazz there's hope.

That's right Scott, we are just looking to get more recognition for all our hard work. This is about a collective not just one person. I'll find out who we direct our concerns to directly and advise.

Best,
Jaijai
