Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals
"My Foolish Heart" by Laura Dickinson – Arranged by Scott Healy
FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IN THE 59th GRAMMY® AWARDS:
Music & Mirror Records presents vocalist Laura Dickinson performing Scott Healy's stunningly original treatment of Victor Young's classic jazz ballad "My Foolish Heart".
Recorded at Capitol Records on May 8, 2016 and released by Music & Mirror Records on August 6, 2016, Laura is backed by her all-star Los Angeles band featuring Kye Palmer on trumpet.
"In my orchestration for Laura, I broke most of the rules for writing behind vocals. I also created a rubato, floating time feel where the end of each line is stretched. It was important to me to follow the song's strong musical and emotional arc, and to have the melody and harmony evolve."
Scott Healy – Grammy® Nominated Composer
"Scott's arrangement was both a joy and challenge to perform, as he wrote my part to be another instrument in the ensemble and not simply singing over the band. Thanks to Capitol Records and Los Angeles' finest session players for bringing this music to life. I hope the world can continue to support independent artists and their music."
