"Both are extraordinary, scintillating improvisers bursting with energy," exclaims BBC Music Magazine, "yet they have great ears for one another." Brad Mehldau Trio drummer Jeff Ballard is nominated for International Drums Instrumentalist of the Year for the Trio's latest album, Blues and Ballads, which MOJO calls "spellbinding ... sublime stuff."

    Antonio Sánchez is also up for the ECHO Jazz Award for International Drums Instrumentalist of the Year, for the Pat Metheny Unity Group album The Unity Sessions, which the Times of London calls "brilliant." Another Metheny collaborator, longtime Pat Metheny Group trumpeter Cuong Vu, is nominated for International Brass Instrumentalist of the Year for the album Cuong Vu Trio Meets Pat Metheny, which "is a complete success," exclaims All About Jazz.
