NARAS honors quartet

Music industry stalwarts Aretha Franklin, Artur Rubenstein and Bill Evans have been named Lifetime Achievement Award recipients by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, while jazz visionary Norman Granz will receive the academy’s Trustee Award.

They will be honored during the non-televised portion of the Grammy Awards, which will be held in New York City on March 1.

Franklin is a 15-time Grammy winner. Evans, a pianist, composer and band leader who died in 1980, earned seven Grammys and is considered the forefather of impressionistic jazz piano. The late concert pianist Rubenstein won 10 Grammys.

Granz’s award recognizes his experience as a record producer and executive.
