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.

    The acclaimed trio Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out now. The record includes eleven originals plus interpretations of songs by Ted Lucas and Michael Hurley, and a traditional hymn—"intimate, close-harmony songs that tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death," says the New York Times. Nonesuch Store CD and vinyl orders include an exclusive signed print while supplies last; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. The trio will be at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 24 and will tour the US this fall.
