James received some exciting pre-Thanksgiving Grammy news this morning — American Standard has been nominated for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album! This is James’s 19th career nomination (he’s won five times previously). James is grateful for the recognition and will keep a finger or two crossed. Kudos as well to James’s friends and co-producers, Dave O’Donnell and John Pizzarelli!
