Turkish Producer Arif Mardin Wins
"Producer Of The Year Award"
at the 45th Grammy Awards

Arif Mardin: Producer of the Year - 2003


It certainly was a big night for Norah Jones, as she scooped up an unprecedented eight Grammy Awards in of all the major categories on Sun, Feb 28th. One name that was part of this phenomenal success but remained out of the spotlight was well known music connoisseur Arif Mardin who produced Norah Jones’ debut album “Come Away With Me.” The album received awards for all the eight categories it was nominated for including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist. Mr. Mardin received the prestigious Producer of the Year Grammy for a non-classical recording.

In a Light Millennium interview made in August 2001, Mr. Mardin told us, “I’m looking for projects that I can enjoy at this age like jazz, or esoteric projects. I want to make that project cross over and become commercial.” The 45th Grammy Awards have validated his words from two years ago. As Arif Mardin continues to captivate audiences with his productions and sounds, he is also living proof that one can always achieve success by believing in what he does and working diligently.

Mr. Mardin recently produced a new record by Melissa Errico whose impressive showbiz resume includes roles on Broadway (High Society, My Fair Lady) in film (Life or Something Like It) and on TV (Ed, The Norm Show). The album "Blue Like That" was released on February 25th. His other project with jazz singer Diane Reeves will be released in August 2003.

We hereby congratulate him on his recent success and wish the best for his upcoming projects. (Mehmet Dede)
