2010 Grammy Nominations

Just when you thoght there were enough best-of lists around, up come the 2010 Grammy Nominations.

On a first inspection no Brits apart from John McLaughlin (any more?) but the French do make a few showings: not least veteran pianist Martial Solal , who was out making new fans in his 80’s at Kings Place.

Also up there is John Patitucci’s trio CD Remembrance, which Dylan Howe was ecstatic about here in September.

Outside jazz, out there in the Urban/Alternative Performance category is a nomination for Robert Glasper, whom Peter Horsfall reviewed at the London Jazz Festival.

Scroll down for a copy/paste of the full list, six categories, heads down:
