Grammy Awards

“One Grammy Award winner, plus another nomination as Best Classical Crossover Album in 2000.

At the 42nd Grammy Canadian Brass takes great pride in two of the six Best Classical Crossover Album Grammy nominations this year.

First, of course, their own Take the “A” Train written by Duke Ellington’s own arranger, Luther Henderson.

Second, that of a CD created around the Canadian Brass signature showstopper Hornsmoke. Composer Peter Schickele is the featured performer in this and other works commissioned by the Canadian Brass in the 1970′s.

And the winner is: Hornsmoke ! – Congratulations, Peter!”
