THE VIRTUAL WALL OF FAME

A few words by Michael Melvoin about the Grammys dropping instrumental categories

More to come on the Academy's dropping instrumental categories. The reaction has been predictable, outrage. I am compiling some of those reactions and will have them for you soon. I know that the people resposible have been given the truth about who we are. They are not pleased. Meanwhile WHO ARE WE? This forward says it nicely: MM

A guy calls the local musicians' union to get a quote on a six piece band for a wedding. The rep says: "Off the top of my head, I'd say about two thousand dollars." The guy says: "ARE YOU KIDDING? —— FOR MUSIC?!?"

The rep responds… "Let me suggest that you call the plumbers' union and ask for six plumbers to work from six to midnight on a Saturday night. Whatever they charge you, we'll work for half!"

This was the original sent to me: Subject: You better become a lyricist I guess!

IN CASE YOU WERE PRACTICING FOR YOUR UPCOMING INSTRUMENTAL RECORDING, HERE’S JUST A FEW OF THE CATEGORIES DROPPED OR MERGED BY THE ACADEMY YESTERDAY
… just sayin’

Best Pop Instrumental
Performance Best Rock Instrumental
Performance Best Contemporary Jazz Album
Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Individual Or Group
Best Latin Jazz Album
Best Instrumental Soloist(s) Performance w/Orchestra
Best Instrumental Soloist(s) Performance w/o Orchestra
Best Country Instrumental Performance

What nerve!!! MM
