CAM JAZZ was launched in the year 2000 in order to group all of its jazz productions. Among the many brilliant results achieved since the moment of CAM JAZZ’s beginning there are the five GRAMMY nominations (2006, 2007, 2008, 2010) obtained in 2006 for the album WHAT NOW? by Anglo-Canadian trumpeter Kenny Wheeler in the category of Best Jazz Instrumental Album, in 2007 for VIVA by Argentine trumpeter Diego Urcola in the category of Best Latin Jazz Album, and in 2008 for 1000 KILOMETERS by Oregon. The album by the famous American quartet obtained, in fact, two nominations: the first in the category of Best Jazz Instrumental Solo for Paul McCandless’ solo in the track that gives name to the CD, and the second in the category of Best Instrumental Composition, thanks to 'Deep Six' by drummer Mark Walker. Finally, the fifth nomination came in 2010 for MARTIAL SOLAL LIVE AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD, in the category Improvised Jazz Solo.
