Los Angeles, Calif. – The stars came out to shine at Music’s Biggest Night® during the 66th Grammy Awards held at the Crypto Arena in downtown Los Angeles. The heavy rain poured down outside even as Joni Mitchell’s rendition of her iconic song Both Sides Now from her 1969 album Clouds, drew tears of emotion from the audience and television viewers alike.

“Music has always been one of humanities greatest connectors,” said Harvey Mason jr., CEO, the Recording Academy. “Every song we heard tonight moved someone… Now is the time for Humanity to play together to come together, with empathy and Love,” Mason said.

Grammys host, Trevor Noah, kept the mood upbeat throughout the evening with his quick wit and humor as well as his heartfelt observations. “These people write the soundtracks of our lives,” Noah said.

Celine Dion presented the final award of the evening. “When I say that I’m happy to be here, I really mean it from my heart,” Dion said. “Those who have been blessed enough to be here at the Grammys must never forget the joy that music brings to people all around the world.” She then presented Taylor Swift with her fourth Album of the Year Award, the first artist to surpass Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder who held the most in the category with three Best Albums wins each, prior to this evening’s ceremonies.

Accepting her fourth win for Album of the Year for her Midnights album, Taylor Swift told the audience and viewers around the world, “The music is the work… All I want to do is keep doing this, I love it so much… it makes me so happy,” Swift said, thanking her team including Lana Del Ray, calling her a legacy artist. Earlier, Swift announced her upcoming album,The Tortured Poets Department, to be released April 19, while accepting her 13th Grammy for her Best Pop Album.

The Piano Man himself, Billy Joel, who earlier performed his new song, Turn the Lights Back On, closed out the 2024 Grammys with a triumphant rendition of his 1980s classic, You May Be Right. Tonight’s Grammys hit all the right notes and will go down in Music History as a night to remember!

TWENTY-FIVE TIME GRAMMY® NOMINEE COMPOSER GORDON GOODWIN STRIKES GOLD AGAIN WITH THREE NEW GRAMMY NOMINATIONS.

Hollywood, Calif. – The 66th Grammy® Award Nominations were announced on November 10, 2023. The astonishing surprise was three new Nominations for Multi Grammy® Emmy Winning Composer/Arranger, Jazz Veteran Gordon Goodwin.

Nominations include:

• Best Jazz Vocal Album: Patti Austin Featuring Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band – For Ella 2.

• Best Instrumental Composition: Quartet San Francisco Featuring Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band – Cutey and The Dragon, Composed by Raymond Scott and Gordon Goodwin.

• Best Arrangement, Instruments, and Vocals: Patti Austin ft. Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band – April in Paris, Arranged by Gordon Goodwin.

Gordon is delighted that his current projects have been considered once again by The Recording Academy. He says, “25, I look at that number and it shocks me every time. I still find it difficult to believe that the members of the Recording Academy have given me 25 Grammy® nominations for my work. I don’t think you ever get used to it and the three most recent nominations seem somehow more precious than ever. I had the good fortune to be involved in two projects that were close to my heart in the past year, and happily, both were acknowledged by the Recording Academy.”

Gordon is grateful for being nominated twice for his collaboration with Jazz phenom Patti Austin. She is jazz royalty; Patti Austin’s keen interest in being a total entertainer likely started when she stepped onto the stage of the world-famous Apollo Theater in Harlem at the age of four at the urging of music legend Dinah Washington. After a series of much-acclaimed albums for CTI Records,  she signed with her godfather Quincy Jones’ Qwest label and began achieving mainstream success on an international level thanks to the GRAMMY® nominated hit “Baby Come To Me,” her now classic duet with James Ingram and the follow-up duet, the Oscar-nominated “How Do You Keep the Music Playing?” as well as her appearance on albums with Jones on his best-selling album Stuff Like That, his GRAMMY®–winning classic The Dude, and later, his From Q With Love Vols. 1& 2. The GRAMMY® nominated For Ella album opened new doors for Patti as a performer and her embrace by the jazz world was further cemented with her Grammy winning classic CD “Avant Gershwin: Now, after more than two decades of touring, her take on the classic American Song Book has expanded Patti’s appeal and garnered standing ovations all over the USA and Europe. Patti continues her philanthropic work with her mentoring organization, “The Over My Shoulder Foundation” and with Covid hopefully winding down she has resumed her touring schedule to the delight of fans all around the world.

Gordon is pleased to receive his composition nomination for “Cutey and The Dragon,” from the album Raymond Scott Reimagined, featuring Quartet San Francisco, Take 6 and the Big Phat Band. Goodwin took the unfinished work by Raymond Scott and completed it in a manner that honors Scott’s sophisticated yet playful style. Raymond neither received nor was nominated for a Grammy during his lifetime; the awards were launched in 1958, by which time Scott had largely stopped issuing commercial recordings. Raymond Scott was a composer, inventor, visionary, pianist, engineer, electronic music pioneer, control freak.

Gordon Goodwin was born in Wichita, Kansas, and Goodwin’s parents moved to Southern California when Goodwin was four. After completing his formal music education at Cal State University-Northridge, Gordon began working as a live performer at Disneyland and after a few years, he was commissioned to work on a musical that featured past and present Mouseketeers (including Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera). That exposure led to studio work with the likes of Quincy Jones, Mel Tormé, Ray Charles and legendary vocalist Johnny Mathis.

In 1999, Gordon founded the Big Phat Band for what he thought would be a single performance at his alma mater Cal State at Northridge. Since then, the Big Phat Band has recorded 10 albums, and in the process received 25 Grammy® nominations. Goodwin won a Grammy® for ‘Best Instrumental Arrangement’ for “Incredits” for the film The Incredibles and has been honored with 3 Emmy awards for his work on the Steven Spielberg-produced shows Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain. His work has been featured/utilized in more than 80 film & TV productions spanning the gamut of pop culture: amplifying the likes of National Treasure, Star Trek: Nemesis, Snakes on a Plane, Get Smart, Remember the Titans, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, The Majestic (starring Jim Carrey), The Lion King, The Incredibles and Ratatouille.

Gordon has won four Grammy® Awards and three Daytime Emmy Awards and has received twenty-five Grammy® nominations for his compositions and arrangements.

“The Incredits” (2005)

Gordon is also the host of the popular long-running radio program, “Phat Tracks with Gordon Goodwin,” airing for 5 years on KJAZZ, America’s jazz and blues station, and finishing its 2nd year broadcasting and streaming from its new home on San Diego’s Jazz 88.3 FM (KSDS). The weekly 2-hour show is a mix of music and stories and commentary.  

Pianist, saxophonist, composer, arranger, and conductor – whatever it is Gordon Goodwin touches, it’s all about his love of music. The accolades and awards come, but for Gordon the feeling of gratitude for his life in music is strong, and he wouldn’t want it any other way.

“Listening to Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, I was immediately taken by Gordon’s contemporary musical viewpoint, the dynamics of his “Big Phat Band,” its bevy of superb soloists, and the exhilaration of its sound.” Quincy Jones.
