Hartt faculty member Steve Davis and his former student James Burton III (Hartt class of 2002) played in the trombone section and were featured as soloists on Christian McBride Big Band's "The Good Feeling," which just received a Grammy nomination for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album.

Congratulations, Steve, James, and Wayne!
