The Jazz Grammy awards have never made the slightest sense to me. This year is no different.

I didn't know Sting ever won a jazz grammy....It's obvious if the voters ever gave Sting a Jazz grammy they have no idea who should excels in jazz. I mean he was just ok singing ballads... I'm an old Police/Sting fan, and think they were one of the greatest bands of all time but come on....It's just like those "smooth" jazz stations in many of our towns that play every type of r and b, and "elevator jazz" like kenny g, dave coz and david sanborn, and never play true jazz. I guess they consider classic jazz like Rollins, Coltrane and Miles to be "rough jazz" and therefore they're not allowed to play it on a "smooth jazz" station. The Grammy voters in the jazz category appear to be just as clueless.
