On March 14, 2021, the 63rd Grammy Awards show was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
The winner in the “Best Jazz Instrumental Album” category was “Trilogy 2” by Chick Corea, Christian McBride, and Brian Blade.
This same trio also won the same award at the 57th Grammy Awards in 2015 and as many of you know Brian Blade is a long time Canopus endorser.
Sadly, Chick Corea passed away on February 9, 2021, before the award was issued, and standing in his place was his wife, Gayle Moran.
A legendary artist in the music business, Chick Corea had won 25 Grammy Awards including “Triology 2” and he also won two Latin Grammy Awards (in addition to being nominated 60 times for a Grammy Award).
We here at Canopus Drums would like to congratulate this incredibly talented trio of musicians for their accomplishments, their prolonged and sustained dedication to their craft, and, for making so many important contributions to the world of music.
We especially want to congratulate our own Brian Blade on his fantastic accomplishments and we wish him much success in his future projects.
