    Pat Metheny Wins His 19th Grammy Award; Judith Sherman Named Producer of the Year, Classical

    Congratulations to Pat Metheny, who won the Grammy Award for Best New Age Album for his 2011 Nonesuch release, What's It All About, at yesterday's awards. This year's win marks the 19th Grammy Award Metheny has received in his storied career.

    What's It All About, released in June 2011, is Pat Metheny's sequel to his Grammy Award-winning first solo baritone-guitar effort, One Quiet Night. It features classic tunes from songwriters like Paul Simon, Lennon & McCartney, Burt Bacharach, and Henry Mancini. The Boston Herald says: "Metheny’s thoughtful, loving approach elevates every tune he tackles to a realm of beauty." The Telegraph, calling attention to the album in its Grammy nomination article, calls Metheny "wonderful."

    Watch Pat Metheny's performance of The Beatles' "And I Love Her" from What's It All About here. For this and other videos from the album—including "Cherish" by The Association, Jobim's "Girl from Ipanema," and Carly Simon's "That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be"—go to nonesuch.com/media:

    Also adding a Grammy Award to her previous wins is producer Judith Sherman, a frequent contributor to many a Nonesuch Records release over the past many years, who won the Grammy Award for Producer of the Year in the Classical field. The award is given out based on the collected output of a producer in a given year. Sherman has won the award in 2007 and 1993 and won this year for work including two Nonesuch albums: John Adams's Son of Chamber Symphony and Steve Reich's WTC 9/11.

    Further congratulations go to Adams, whose opera, Doctor Atomic, recorded on Sony Classical, won the Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording.
