    2023 Grammy nominations

    Brad Mehldau's fantastic Jacob's Ladder, which includes an interpretation of "Starship Trooper" as well as pieces by Rush and Gentle Giant, has been nominated in the Best Contemporary Instrumental Album category (even though it is not entirely instrumental) for the 2023 Grammys.

    Trevor Horn's son Aaron also gets three nominations. He co-wrote and co-produced Doja Cat's "Woman", which was nominated in the Record of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Music Video categories.

    Brad Mehldau’s album is excellent. Coincidently he was playing at the Barbican last night playing ‘MoodSwing’ unfortunately was slow off the mark and it was sold out.

      With around a hundred categories for the Grammy Awards, it's somewhat sad that there is none for Prog Rock, nor does Prog fit well into any of the categories, even if you shoehorned some Prog tracks into Rock or Metal categories.

        Didn't those folky proggers Jethro Tull win a Grammy for best metal act? Heheheheee. 1989. From memory. Beat ACDC and Metallica. Ian Anderson never bothered to turn up. Was a surprise to everyone. After finally winnin' for One later , Lars Ulrich thanked the Tull for not releasin' an album that year.

        Alice Cooper accepted Tull's Grammy and got booed offstage because of it.

        Should be a prog category but historically it's a British genre. Sorry Kansas and Styx and The Mars Volta. Maybe if Lizzo covers another YESSONG prog might shine again.

          Tull winning a metal Grammy is hilarious. Steel Monkey is a good song, despite Ian’s voice being pretty shot.

            It was the first year they had introduced the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal or Instrumental category and Tull's win was a big surprise. In response, the category was split into Best Hard Rock Performance and Best Metal Performance for the next year, so Tull were not only the inaugural winner, they were the only ever winner in the combined category. Living Colour won the inaugural Best Hard Rock category in 1990, and then again in 1991. The Mars Volta won in 2009.
