Now about those earrings ...
I'm so glad you're talking about this. One of my oldest and dearest friends, Jory Vinikour, was up for his second Best Instrumental Solo Grammy last night. I thought that maybe Leon Fleisher (which spell-check tried to change to "fleshier") would get the sympathy vote, but he didn't win either.
Jory's album, Toccatas, is beautiful, bold and brilliant. His playing is superhuman.
I'm sure if Jory ever reads this comment, he will be embarrassed and will chide me for posting it, but he's too modest. I'll say it straight out -- Jory should have won.
