Jazz Now

We just had the honor of taking part in the Jazz Now project initiated by Patrick Jarenwattananon of NPR's A Blog Supreme.

Our task was to select 10 albums to introduce new jazz to individuals not familiar with the music. Our list included [Aaron Parks]' Invisible Cinema, [Avishai Cohen]'s Gently Disturbed, [Benjamin Moussay]'s Swimming Pool, [Christian Scott]'s Anthem, [e.s.t.]'s Tuesday Wonderland, [Laurent de Wilde]'s The Present, [Neil Cowley]'s Displaced, [Rusconi]'s One Up Down Left Right, [The Bad Plus]' These Are The Vistas and [Yaron Herman]'s A Time For Everything. Have a listen!
