Ramblin' Jack Elliott Receives 5th Grammy Nomination
For 'A Stranger Here' Produced by Joe Henry
with Special Friends Van Dyke Parks and David Hildago
The 2010 Grammy nominations have been announced and Jack's most recent album, A STRANGER HERE nabbed a spot for Best Traditional Blues album. Yes, blues. All pre WWII tunes from some of the amazing American Musical aritsts that Jack knew and loved. Produced by Joe Henry and released on Anti Epitaph Records - this project was a true labor of love.
Jack's has had four nominations in the past—and won one for 'A South Coast' on Red House Records in 1998 — 'Friends of Mine' on Hightone Records in1999 and 'A Long Ride' in 2001 - 'I Stand Alone' his debut on Anti a few short years ago - all in the folk catageory, so this is especially delightful! Jack can sing the blues like no other.
You'll find A STRANGER HERE and all of Jack's special recordings and Grammy-nominated and awarded albums in our Music Store.
