The Grammy Award for Best New Age Album is presented to recording artists for quality albums in the New Age music genre at the Grammy Awards, an annual ceremony that recognizes "artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position". Originally called the Grammy Award for Best New Age Recording, the honor was first presented to Swiss musician Andreas Vollenweider at the 29th Grammy Awards in 1987. From 1988 to 1991 the category was known as Best New Age Performance; the name Best New Age Album has remained unchanged since 1992. As of 2011, Paul Winter holds the record for the most wins in this category, having won six times (four times as the leader of the group Paul Winter Consort). (Full list...)
