Dave Brubeck receives posthumous Grammy nomination
By CHARLES J. GANS, Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) -- Dave Brubeck has received a posthumous Grammy Award nomination in the Best Instrumental Composition category for a symphonic piece inspired by Ansel Adams' iconic black-and-white photographs.

Brubeck and his son Chris were nominated Wednesday for "Music of Ansel Adams: America," performed by the Temple University Symphony Orchestra. The announcement came hours after the legendary jazz pianist and composer died at age 91 in Norwalk, Conn.

Brubeck initially composed the 22-minute work as a piano piece, and it was transformed by his son into a full orchestral score. It was released earlier this year as an EP.

Brubeck received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996, but has never won a Grammy in a regular category. The Grammys are Feb. 10 in Los Angeles.
