The nominations are out for the 2008 Grammy awards. And whether you agree with them or not (i.e. Roy Hargrove’s Earfood album getting snubbed), we’d like to know who you think will win. Below are all of the categories involving jazz artists, even if just in a small way. Let your vote be heard!
And, as always, you’re comments are encouraged!!!

Here’s the correct link to our picks for best jazz CDs. http://www.jazzafterhours.org – sorry ’bout that.
Judging artistic achievement is NOT like judging giant pumpkins. You can’t weigh a jazz solo. However, Americans love a competition and that’s why we have the Grammys, the Oscars, even the Country Music Awards. I rather prefer an unranked list of significant achievements, because what I like is not necessarily what you will like, but hopefully we can both appreciate the artisanship, imagination and skill that goes in to producing an exceptional recording. Is this one “better” than that one? I wouldn’t want to be “the great decider” to that question.
