Dec 2nd, 2010 | By

[Update: Shout out to author and colleague Ashley Kahn for his Liner Notes nomination! JazzTimes has the full jazz slate, including nominations in the arranging, composition, world music and classical crossover categories.]

Nominees for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards are in, and the jazz category features such names as Vijay Iyer, Darcy James Argue, Dave Holland, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Hank Jones, Danilo Perez and more.

The full jazz slate is here.

And in the Best New Artist category – that’s Best New Artist, period, not Best New Jazz Artist – we have jazz bassist/vocalist Esperanza Spalding going head-to-head with Justin Bieber, Drake, Florence & The Machine, and Mumford and Sons.

Very interesting. Comments, JJA members? The full Grammy nominee roster is here.
