The Grammy's, Vitello's & Cathy Segal Garcia's Workshop -
I'm just coolin' my heels back home in Jersey recovering from a whirlwind five days in LA. The infamous "Grammys" were sunday afternoon and night. There's always a conversation about the live broadcast and of course, 'who won' . In my category, Kurt Elling finally won a Grammy for his Coltrane/Hartman Tribute. This was Kurt's ninth nomination, so it's nice that he finally got one of these coveted prizes for all of his hard work. Bill Cunliffe, who played piano on my gig at Vitello's on Friday night (Jan.28th) won a Grammy also for a medley that he wrote on "West Side Story". Major congratulations for Bill. This was our first gig and it was really great to work with him.
I'm waiting for pictures from Cathy Segal Garcia of my workshop on sunday afternoon in Granada Hills. I'll post about that when Cathy sends the photos. It was a great workshop with eight wonderful singers.
