Grammy award winners from my “Best of 2007 list“:
- Pop Collaboration With Vocals: “Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On),” Robert Plant & Alison Krauss.
- Country Album: “These Days,” Vince Gill.
And a few other winners from the stuff that I have in my iPod:
- Male R&B Vocal Performance: “Future Baby Mama,” Prince.
- Jazz Instrumental Album, Individual or Group: “Pilgrimage,” Michael Brecker.
- Instrumental Composition: “Cerulean Skies,” Maria Schneider, composer (Maria Schneider Orchestra).

I apparently do very poorly with pop music these days… and although I’m a jazz fan in general, I was not loving the Herbie Hancock choice.
