Count University of Washington Jazz Studies faculty Steve Rodby among the Seattle winners at the 2022 GRAMMY Awards. The School of Music artist-in-residence produced “Mirror Mirror,” an album of duets by  jazz pianist Eliane Elias with Chick Corea and Chucho Valdés, which took home the GRAMMY in the category of Best Latin Jazz Album. Rodby also co-produced this year’s Best Instrumental Composition winner, the late pianist Lyle Mays’ “Eberhard” EP. Mays and Rodby were longtime bandmates (along with Jazz Studies Chair Cuong Vu) in the highly renowned Pat Metheny Group.

Rodby’s impressive lifetime GRAMMY total now stands at 14. The musician/producer previously earned 11 of the recording industry's outstanding achievement awards for his work with guitarist Metheny.

Rodby’s artist-in-residency at the UW is made possible through a 2020 gift from Seattle’s Raynier Foundation. Read more here.
