News has just arrived that eighth blackbird’s latest album, “Meanwhile” on Cedille Records, is nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Small Ensemble Performance. The title track from the album by Stephen Hartke was also nominated for Best Contemporary Classical Composition. The ensemble has won two previous Grammy Awards, for “strange imaginary animals” in 2008 and “Slide” in 2011.
Eighth Blackbird would like to thank the amazing Jim Ginsburg and Cedille Records, to producer Judy Sherman, engineer Bill Maylone and mastering engineer Valgeir Sigurðsson. And to the composers.
