Turtle Island String Quartet wins Grammy

Turtle Island String Quartet won their second Grammy in three years on Sunday night for their recording of A Love Supreme:The Legacy of John Coltrane on the Telarc label, netting them the Best Classical Crossover Album. It is their second Grammy in three years.

You can congratulate them personally when they play here on April 26.

Soweto Gospel Choir, who we hosted just last year, also took home a Grammy for Best Traditional World Music Album and the original cast recording of Spring Awakening won for Best Musical Show Album.

See, there was a lot more going on than Kanye West talking about his mom or Amy Winehouse giving shout-outs to her incarcerated husband. Personally, I was happiest that Foo Fighters took home the trophies for Best Rock Album and Best Hard Rock Performance, and that The White Stripes nabbed Best Alternative Rock Album and Best Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.
