August 15, 2014
BP recently received word that the National Academy of Recording Arts and Science presented Jerry Jemmott with a long-overdue certificate recognizing his low-end work on King Curtis' Grammy Award-winning recording of "Games People Play."

"Games" took home the prize for Best R&B Instrumental Performance in 1969.

Congratulations, Jerry!
