Veteran producer-arranger Quincy Jones established a Grammy landmark and newcomer Mariah Carey pulled off a rare parlay in the nominations for the 33rd annual Grammy Awards, which were announced Thursday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Grammy perennial Phil Collins led the pack of nominees with a total of eight nominations. The Grammy list encompasses 77 categories in 27 musical fields from rap to classical music. The awards will be presented at Radio City Music Hall in New York on Feb. 20 and will be broadcast live on CBS-TV.
Producer-arranger Jones' five nominations--including a best album nod for "Back on the Block"--brought his career total to 74, moving him ahead of Henry Mancini, who has 71. Jones has won 19 Grammys, starting with a 1963 arrangement for Count Basie and including album of the year and record of the year in 1983 as producer of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" album and "Beat It" single.
Young soul-pop singer Carey was named in five categories, including album, song, record and new artist. Only Tracy Chapman in 1988 and Christopher Cross in 1980 had been previously nominated in the last four categories.
Nominees were chosen by more than 6,000 voting members of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.
Besides Jones and Carey, the album nominees are Phil Collins (". . . But Seriously"), M.C. Hammer ("Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em") and Wilson Phillips ("Wilson Phillips").
Joining Carey's "Vision of Love" in the running for best single record are Collins' "Another Day in Paradise," Bette Midler's "From a Distance," M.C. Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" and Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U."
The major surprise of the voting involved O'Connor. The controversial singer received four nominations but was shut out in the prestigious album of the year category.
O'Connor and rapper Hammer (who also received four nominations) were the dominant pop figures of the past year, and her widely acclaimed "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got" had been considered an automatic best-album entry. O'Connor's nominations are in the record, female pop vocal, alternative album and short-form video categories.
Like Carey, the vocal trio Wilson Phillips will compete for both best album and best new artist. The other new artist contenders are English soul singer Lisa Stansfield, Atlanta-based rockers the Black Crowes and country mavericks the Kentucky Headhunters.
In the song of the year category--a writer's award--Collins was nominated for "Another Day in Paradise"; Carey and Ben Margulies for "Vision of Love"; Julie Gold for Midler's "From a Distance"; Chynna Phillips, Glen Ballard and Carnie Wilson for Wilson Phillips' "Hold On," and Prince for O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U."
In the alternative-music category, introduced this year to recognize non-mainstream acts, a misplaced O'Connor is joined by the Replacements, World Party, Kate Bush and Laurie Anderson.
Blues singer-guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan, who died in a helicopter crash last August, received two nominations for the Vaughan Brothers record he made with his brother Jimmie Vaughan. Other posthumous nominees are Leonard Bernstein, Art Blakey (as a member of Bluesiana Triangle), Mel Lewis, Vladimir Horowitz, Roy Orbison, Keith Whitley, Ray Goulding of Bob & Ray and Jan DeGaetani.
The fresh thinking apparent in the classical nominations last year continues, with new names and interesting repertory in all fields.
In the best-album category, however, memorial sentiment and star power will be major factors, as Leonard Bernstein's Ives program with the New York Philharmonic and Horowitz's last recording vie with the Carreras-Domingo-Pavarotti concert.
The Bernstein Ives is also up for best orchestral performance, where it competes with his Shostakovich program with the Chicago Symphony, which has another nomination itself in the best engineering category.
Other multiple nominees include Robert ("The Inevitable") Shaw's Rachmaninoff Vespers, which is on the ballot in the best album, best engineering, and best choral performance categories. In the last area it joins Shaw's Atlanta Symphony/Chorus recording of Walton's "Belshazzar's Feast" and Bernstein's "Chichester Psalms" and Missa Brevis.
Bernstein will also be the sentimental favorite for best contemporary composition, with his "Arias and Barcarolles" matched against vote-splitting entries from John Adams, Henri Lazarof, Terry Riley and Ellen Taaffe Zwillich. John Henken contributed to this article.
