Last summer, you might've read our short review of a new Bob Mintzer album recorded live at the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild.

Turns out Gordon Spencer wasn't the only one who liked For the Moment; last night, the album received two Grammy nominations: one for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album, and one for Best Instrumental Arrangement, for the song "Irrequieto."

The album was recorded live at MCG in September 2011. The MCG Jazz label has won four Grammys in the past for albums by artists including Paquito D'Rivera.
