January, 2008 – It‘s rare for two mastering engineers from the same mastering studio to be Grammy®-nominated for mastering the Album of the Year, but Bernie Grundman Mastering has achieved just that.

Brian “Big Bass” Gardner is nominated for mastering “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace,” Foo Fighters. Gil Norton produced the album with engineer/mixers Adrian Bushby & Rich Costey for Roswell/RCA Records.

Bernie Grundman is nominated for “River: The Joni Letters,” Herbie Hancock, Leonard Cohen, Norah Jones, Joni Mitchell, Corinne Bailey Rae, Luciana Souza & Tina Turner, featured artists. Herbie Hancock & Larry Klein share producer credits, Helik Hadar engineer/mixer, for Verve Records.

The 50th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on Feb. 10, 2008, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and once again will be broadcast live in high definition TV and 5.1 surround sound on CBS from 8 – 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

Bernie Grundman Mastering, responsible for a consistently large percentage of chart recordings, was launched in 1984, following Grundman‘s 15-year tenure with A&M Studios. In 1997, Grundman opened his Tokyo mastering studios and in 1998 relocated to expanded facilities in Hollywood.
