Latin Jazz players sue Grammys for axing award

Latin Jazz players sue Grammys for axing award

Four Latin Jazz musicians are suing the Grammy Awards for cutting their category from the list of awards handed out each year. 


In a suit filed in New York state court, the musicians accuse the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of threatening their careers by denying them the chance to win a coveted Grammy.
The academy cut Latin Jazz along with 30 other categories in a streamlined list that still tops out at 78 awards.

But in their suit, filed last week, the four artists say the changes unfairly derailed their career-long build-ups to becoming Grammy winners.

One plaintiff, Benjamin Lapidus, who heads a Latin Jazz group and has been an academy member since 2001, says he had been told he would have a chance for an award in the Latin Jazz category if he released his eight album, "Generaciones," this year. (more - Click News Headline title)
