The Hollistic MusicWorks label is happy to announce that trumpeter Brian Lynch’s “Madera Latino – A Latin Jazz Perspective On The Music Of Woody Shaw” project, a 2 CD set, has been placed on the Official Ballot for the 59th Grammy© Awards!
We would like to ask any of you who are voting NARAS members for your consideration in selecting Madera Latino in first round voting for nomination in these categories:
Best Latin Jazz Album
Best Improvised Jazz Solo
The Grammy first round ballots have been sent to all voting members and must be received by the Academy by Friday, November 4.
If you know someone else who is casting their vote in this year’s Grammys, please forward this email and ask for their consideration on Madera Latino’s behalf.
Even if you’re not a voting member, we’d still appreciate it if you spread the word to everyone you know about this project, via social media, email, or simple word of mouth! Hollistic MusicWorks and Brian are very proud of what we’ve accomplished with this project.

It’s been exactly 10 years since Brian Lynch’s CD “Simpatico” in collaboration with Eddie Palmieri won the Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Album, and we think Madera Latino has what it takes to grab another one, with your help.
Thanks for your consideration!

“I am very proud of what Brian has done with this project, and particularly of the depth of sincerity and the meticulousness with which he has treated the re-interpretation of Woody Shaw’s original works within the Afro-Latino idiom. My respect and gratitude go out to the musicians on this recording for keeping the spirit of this music – and of one of its last great innovators – alive and strong in the 21st century.”
Woody Louis Armstrong Shaw, III.
