Seeley wins sixth Grammy with orchestra

Holton native and jazz trumpeter Jim Seeley was honored with a sixth Grammy award on Jan. 28 as part of his collaboration efforts with the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, it was reported.

Seeley performed on “Three Revolutions,” which won Best Instrumental Composition at the 60th annual awards ceremony. The composition was composed by Arturo O’Farrill.  

The song is from O’Farrill’s latest work “Familia: Tribute to Bebo+Chico,” an album released in September 2017 in honor of the families of pianists Arturo O’Farrill and Chucho Valdes.
