I’m overjoyed to announce that Dynamic Maximum Tension has been nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album!
I got the news while I was backstage waiting to go on with the Frankfurt Big Band — a nice pre-gig jolt! There were some truly extraordinary large ensemble records released this year, so I’m especially honored to be among the five to be nominated.
Over the past two decades, my co-conspirators have poured their hearts and souls into all of the crazy music I write, and this recording is the accumulated result of all that sweat and toil. It’s been a genuine labor of love for everyone involved: the musicians, the production team, the recording and mastering engineers, everyone at Nonesuch Records, and of course all of our incredibly supportive fans. Deepest gratitude to you all!
