The Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing will celebrate its 10th anniversary with “Shaken Rattled & Rolled,” a special event honoring producer-musician T Bone Burnett at the Village Recording Studio in West L.A. on Feb. 9.

The Grammy Week fete will celebrate 10-time Grammy winner Burnett’s commitment to excellence and ongoing support for the art and craft of recorded music.

Texas-born Burnett was named producer of the year in 2002 for his work on the roots music soundtrack for the album of the year winner “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” He also helmed Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ 2009 album of the year “Raising Sand.”

Elton John and Leon Russell, whose 2010 release “The Union” was produced by Burnett, are serving as honorary event co-chairs for the event.

The Producers & Engineers Wing comprises 6,000 member producers, engineers, dremixers, manufacturers, technologists and other creative and technical recording industry pros.
