2016 Grammy Preview, Sorta

As is typical, you won’t find a great deal of coverage of current-day Grammy nominees in the virtual pages of Musoscribe. But you will find a few things.


  • The Mavericks are nominated in the Best Americana Album category for Mono. They also got a nomination for “Best American Roots Song” for Mono‘s “All Night Long.” My review of Mono is here. I love that album.
  • A tribute album to Muddy Waters has a nomination. I reviewed Muddy Waters 100 in August.
  • Bill Frisell‘s Guitar in the Space Age! is nominated in the Best Contemporary Instrumental Album category. Me, I was a bit underwhelmed.
  • The documentary Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me got a sorta-nomination in the Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media category. I interviewed Kim Campbell about the film.
  • Buddy Guy‘s Born to Play Guitar is nominated in the Best Blues Album category. I covered it briefly on its release.
  • The Revelers earned a nomination for their latest album, Get Ready. Here’s my recent interview with The Revelers.
  • The remastered reissue of Roger WatersAmused to Death is nominated in the Best Surround Sound Album category. My review of that album is here.

Well, whaddya know! I guess there are more than a couple after all. Who knew? The 58th Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast one month from today, on February 15, 2016.
