But Flory downplayed the award, saying that it’s “something that happened.”
“Everyone should have a Grammy as well,” Flory said.
In Hollywood, Flory said he doesn’t often play gigs anymore, but he said he’s still arranging music. He’s currently writing pieces for a new CD, featuring a 15-man band, which he hopes to record next year.
“It’ll be a mix of old chestnuts and some new stuff,” Flory said.
And with his new album, Flory said he’s continuing to improve his craft.
“I’m looking at what happens next,” Flory said. “I’m not through. I’ve still got a lot of things to do.”
