This year, there was singer Teyana Taylor protesting that “all I see is dick” in the all-male nominations for best R&B album, and a slightly peculiar statement from Justin Bieber, asking to be considered an R&B artist rather than a pop singer. More headlines were grabbed by the Weeknd, un...

The Grammys have a major problem with diversity. Lip service isn’t going to solve it | Ian Brennan

Renaming the world music category does little to fix its pattern of exclusion, which has robbed audiences of truly global talentThis past summer the Grammys academy summoned an emergency meeting, circumventing its own rules and standard procedure to fast-track a name revision for World Music: the lone international category accommodating those outside the English and Spanish-speaking worlds. The new title, Global Music, was determined to be a “more relevant, modern and inclusive term” which “sym...

Watch Chick Corea (RIP) Perform Intimate Acoustic Performances with Bobby McFerrin, Gary Burton, Hiromi Uehara & Others

It seems impossible to talk about keyboardist Chick Corea, who passed away from cancer on February 11 at age 79, without also talking about Miles Davis. Davis hand picked him for the groundbreaking albums In a Silent Way and Bitches Brew, and as a member of those ensembles, Corea helped shape the future of music and helped divide the jazz community into those who embraced the psychedelic “fusion” of jazz, rock, and other world musics and those who were fiercely protective of tradition. C...

Tony Bennett Duets with Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse & Other Musicians, Passing on the Great American Songbook I was possessed with a wonderful example of my Italian American family.

What am I supposed to do?” And they told me that they love the way I sang. It created a passion in my life that exists to this moment as I speak to you, that is stronger now at 89 than in my whole lif...
