In addition, Trustees Awards – which recognize those who contributed to the recording industry in a non-performance capacity – will go to the late Steve Jobs, New Orleans composer-arranger Dave Bartholomew and jazz producer Rudy Van Gelder. Recipients will be honored at an invitation-only event during Grammy Week and on the 54th annual Grammy Awards telecast on February 12th.
