Grammy jams

As if the seemingly endless permutations of Grammy categories weren’t enough to keep up with, the slate of pre-Awards kudos has begun to follow suit, with a dizzying crush of Grammy Week galas leading up to the Feb. 13 telecast.

The Recording Academy’s various branches will be holding enough events to clutter any schedule.

The two days leading up to the Grammys are set to be the busiest, and the hottest ticket will surely be the MusiCares’ Person of the Year salute to Barbra Streisand at the L.A. Convention Center on Feb. 11, with Tony Bennett, Stevie Wonder and “Glee’s” Lea Michele scheduled to perform. On Grammy Awards Eve, Clive Davis and the Recording Academy will present David Geffen with a career honor at their Salute to Industry Icons in Beverly Hills, while Julie Andrews will be on hand for the Grammy’s Special Merit Awards ceremony across town at the Wilshire Ebell.

The Recording Acad’s Producers & Engineers Wing hits the spotlight Feb. 9, with T Bone Burnett receiving a lifetime achievement kudo in a ceremony that’s competing with a Sara Bereilles headlined performance at the Grammy in the Schools Live! celebration over on the USC campus.

On Feb. 10, the Ebell hosts the Grammy Foundation’s Preservation Project, inviting Phife Dawg, Kid Capri, Arrested Development and DJ Jazzy Jeff to the soiree. Next day sees a more contemporary representative of the genre take the stage, as Black Eyed Peas maestro will.i.am will keynote the Entertainment Law Initiative luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

All told, it’s a full score for any music biz maven.
