The Recording Academy's President/CEO Neil Portnow has released the following statement on the passing of Jules Chaikin.

"An accomplished trumpeter, music contractor and contributor to film scores, Jules Chaikin was a highly talented musician with a career that spanned several decades. Chaikin worked with such artists as the Carpenters, Chicago, Dionne Warwick, Aretha Franklin, Kenny Rogers, Nina Simone, and Johnny Mathis, and he contributed to such films as The Rose, A Star Is Born, Ghostbusters, and Star Wars. We were fortunate to have him as part of our GRAMMY family not only as a past elected leader but as a music conductor on the telecast for more than 20 years. We have lost a gifted musician and a giving individual, and our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, friends and all those who were fortunate to work with him."
