And the Grammy Goes To….

Three VERY awesome artists!!!

– Esperanza Spalding, who notably beat out Justin Bieber for Best New Artist, and a great sound in jazz to boot. YES!

– Lalah Hathaway, and

– Kirk Whalum!

I am so happy for them. Three, count ’em, three jazz musicians, all of whom veritable powerhouses, and one of whom a fresh face on Best New Artist! I am stoked! :D
