I know that all of you (ok, maybe just a few of you :P) have been waiting with bated breath for the announcement of the jazz nominees for the 2012 GRAMMY Awards!
Here are the four (4) categories that remain in the genre. Keep in mind that NARAS decided to eliminate the "Best Contemporary Jazz Album" and "Best Latin Jazz Album" back in the Spring of 2011.
What do you think about the nominees this year? Any surprises for you?
Good luck to all of the nominees!
