This past Sunday, Steven Feifke brought home the GRAMMY Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble album. It is a historic first-time win for Feifke, who becomes the youngest ever winner in the category’s six decade existence. No one â€” not Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie â€” won it sooner.
“What an incredible honor,” Feifke stated in his acceptance speech. “Thank you so much to the Recording Academy, to all of our peers and friends in the audience tonight. This album for us is truly a mission of celebrating and showcasing generational diversity and I’m so proud to be here with my mentor and collaborator on this project, Bijon Watson.”
