Jason Vieaux Nominated for Grammy Award

VieauxCleveland, Ohio-based classical (and jazz) guitarist Jason Vieaux has been honored with a Grammy Awards nomination in the category Best Classical Instrumental Solo, for his 2014 album Play, on Azica Records.

The highly regarded album showcases Vieaux’s dexterity and versatility, as the 41-year-old guitarist covers works by a broad range of composers from many different eras, including a pair of compositions by Francisco Tárrega, two from Augstin Barrios-Mangoré, and several from more modern sources, including Brazilians Antonio Carlos Jobim and Paolo Bellinati, former LAGQ leader Andrew York, and for good measure, Duke Ellington.


The 57th annual Grammy Awards will be held on February 8 at the Staples Center in L.A., with this category (and most others) being given out before the national telecast.
