Released in March, the album hit #1 on the Billboard Smooth Jazz Albums chart and held #1 for a record-breaking 36 weeks on SmoothJazz.com.

Nathan East was produced by Yamaha Entertainment Group Founder Chris Gero and engineered by Bryan Lenox. For The Record, a new documentary on Nathan, debuts on Hulu this month offering a behind-the-scenes look at the recording process.

The nomination caps off one of the most exciting years in Nathan’s career, which kicked off with a performance with Daft Punk at the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards; included appearances on Tonight Show, Arsenio and Tavis Smiley; and next month will see Nathan inducted into the Hall of Fame on January 24 at the NAMM TEC Awards.
