Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Performance


Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Performance

The Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Performance was awarded from 1964 to 1967. The award had several minor name changes:

*From 1964 to 1965, the award was known as Best Instrumental Performance - Non-Jazz
*In 1966, it was called the Best Instrumental Performance (Other Than Jazz)
*In 1967, it was renamed the Best Instrumental Performance

Although in the pop category of Grammy Awards, the award did not specify popular music performances. Beginning in 1969, a specific pop award has been presented: Best Pop Instrumental Performance. Years reflect the year in which the Grammy Awards were presented, for works released in the previous year.
