Ferber is a Grammy nominee for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album for March Sublime. This is his first Grammy nomination.
I must have been in the middle of playing a loud trombone solo at a Saturday night gig when the text came into my phone saying “GRAMMY-nominated!!!” from my pianist friend, Dave Cook. I saw the message on the ensuing set break and wrote back, “WTF?! … That’s unexpected!” I had to go to GRAMMY.com to check it out myself. I think I refreshed the page three times until I started believing I was actually nominated.
