Lifetime achievement Grammy Awards for 2008 will go to performers whose careers span more than seven decades and cross genres from big band and classical music to rock and country: Cab Calloway, Itzhak Perlman, Burt Bacharach, the Band, Doris Day and Earl Scruggs.

In addition, the Recording Academy announced Tuesday that its Trustees Awards will go to Elektra and Nonesuch Records founder Jac Holzman, Memphis, Tenn.-based producer and songwriter Willie Mitchell and former Motown Records Chairman Clarence Avant. Technical Grammys will be awarded to Ampex Corp. for its innovations in audio and videotape recording, and to audio engineer John Eargle.

They'll be recognized when the 50th Grammy Awards are handed out on Feb. 10. The ceremony will take place at Staples Center and will be telecast on CBS.
