    Miguel Zenón, Fred Hersch, John Daversa, Brad Mehldau, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Wayne Shorter, Orrin Evans, and Dafnis Prieto are     among the jazz picks

Pop stars like Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, Childish Gambino, and Cardi B dominated the list. In the jazz categories, Miguel Zenón, Fred Hersch, Brad Mehldau, and John Daversa each received two nominations—Daversa for Best Improvised Jazz Solo and Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album, the other three for Best Improvised Jazz Solo and Best Jazz Instrumental Album.

Interestingly, Hersch was nominated for his solo on Thelonious Monk’s “We See,” in a version recorded for the 2018 /Live in Europe/ album. What makes that interesting? At the 2017 Grammys he was nominated for a solo on the same composition, as heard on the 2016 album /Sunday Night
at the Vanguard/ (John Scofield’s solo on “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” ended up winning that year’s award).

Other standout 2019 nominations include Cécile McLorin Salvant, for her duo album /The Window/; Wayne Shorter, for /Emanon/; Orrin Evans and the Captain Black Big Band, for /Presence/; and the Dafnis Prieto Big Band, for /Back to the Sunset/.

We are also pleased to report that Terence Blanchard’s “Blut and Boden (Blood and Soil),” written for the soundtrack of Spike Lee’s film /BlacKkKlansman/, was nominated for Best Instrumental Composition; and that Ben Ratliff, a past /JazzTimes/ contributor, received a Best Album
Notes nomination for penning the notes to the Sonny Clark Trio archival album /The 1960 Time Sessions/.

The 61st Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 10, 2019.
