Congratulations to our 2011 Grammy Nominated Clients!
Congratulations to Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys for their nomination of their CD
'Grand Isle' in the "Best Regional Roots Music Album" category.
As many of you know, this year N.A.R.A.S. (the Grammy organization) eliminated dozens
of categories and has grouped many disparate forms of music into broader categories.
Hence the appearance of 'Grand Isle' in the 'Roots' category. If you are a voting member,
please give Steve's record a listen and your vote if you like what you hear. Producer
CC Adcock and mixer Mike Napolitano really created a distinct sounding record by
juxtaposing vintage recording techniques and instrumentation against pristine hi-
fidelity elements. And they didn't stop there! There were some very vintage and atypical
processing techniques utilized during mastering to give this record it's distinct sound.
It was not your standard mastering session to say the least!
Longtime client John Hollenbeck (and 2010 Grammy Nominee for best Jazz Large
Ensemble category - which we mastered), is up for another this year for 'Best
Instrumental Composition'. The nomination is for "Falling Men", one of ten mini-
concertos that John composed for Daniel Yvinec's Orchestra National de Jazz album
'Shut Up And Dance'. Though we did not master this French release, we are huge fans
of John and wish him luck!
We did master John's latest Claudia Quintet CD "What Is The Beautiful" (featuring
Kurt Elling), which has been garnering incredible reviews in both the trade and general
media as of late. Do yourself a favor and give both of these releases a listen, John is a
major international composer, and in my opinion, creating some of the most important
compositions and albums of our time.
Best of luck to both John and Steve in February!
