11/02/2019

Berklee alumni and faculty members were recognized across multiple genres and categories at the 61st annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 10. Eight alumni from the College and Conservatory and three Berklee faculty members took home gold-plated gramophones on the music industry's biggest night for their contribution to last year's top albums, songs, and productions.

Songwriter Joelle James B.M. 11 won her first Grammy on Sunday for Best R&B Song. James penned Ella Mai's smash hit Boo'd Up along with Larrance Dopson, Dijon McFarlane, and Mai herself. Host Alicia Keys sampled the song during a mid-show piano medley featuring a selection of her favorite songs from the past few years.

Producer and American music icon Quincy Jones 51 took home his 28th Grammy statue when he won for Best Musical Film; his self-titled Netflix documentary was codirected by his daughter Rashida Jones.

Annie Clark 03, best known for her stage moniker St. Vincent, took home two trophies for her critically acclaimed album Masseduction: Best Rock Song ( Masseduction ) and Best Recording Package. Clark performed a mashup of One Kiss and Masseduction at the ceremony with Best New Artist recipient Dua Lipa.

Two faculty members from Berklee won Grammys in the category of Best Jazz Instrumental Album. Berklee Global Jazz Institute (BGJI) Artistic Director Danilo P rez and Visiting Scholar in Performance Studies John Patitucci performed as members of the Wayne Shorter Quartet on their most recent album, Emanon. Visiting Scholar in Jazz Composition Terence Blanchard took home the award for Best Instrumental Composition with his piece Blut und Boden (Blood and Soil) from Spike Lees film BlacKkKlansman.

Boston Conservatory at Berklee alumna Rachel Prather (B.F.A. 12, musical theater) won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album as a principal cast member of The Band's Visit, which also won Best Musical at the Tony Awards in 2018. Drummer Richard L. Kulsar B.M. 90 and clarinetist Linus Wyrsch B.M. 08 both won Grammys for Best Children's Album for All the Sounds by Lucy Kalantari and the Jazz Cats. Engineer David Elevator Greenbaum, a longtime collaborator of Beck's, took home the award for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for the artist's acclaimed album Colors.

A number of alumni contributed to winning albums, songs, and bands that were honored at the ceremony. Brian Riordan B.M. 95 worked as the rerecording mixer on Dave Chappelle's Equanimity & the Bird Revelation, which won Best Comedy Album. The Spanish Harlem Orchestra, winner of Best Tropical Latin Album for Anniversary, features alumnus Jeremy Bosch B.M. 11 as a vocalist and flutist.
