Favourite Releases of 2016
 

ImageHere are my choices for my favourite releases of 2016. It was a very good year.  You'll also see a second list of very worthy recordings.   These came about after listening to 500+ recordings from 29 different countries and too many artists to count (well, I could but the music is what counts.)  I hope you find (or have found) some music you like.

ONE MAN'S JAZZ IS ON TAINT RADIO

 

 Taintradio.org is one of the great listening spots on the web.  The intrepid band of independent producers have pressed onward with the same mission from day 1:  independent and unstructured programming, with no suits, hired guns and managers, presented by an international group of passionate-about-improvised music mavens dedicated to the music they play.


Taint Radio is in its tenth year (with one hiatus to retool and re-energize), with one Internet Radio Station of the Year Award, and a constant goal to present original programming 24/7, without ads, commercial sponsorship and the usual flotsam and jetsam of terrestrial radio. Our only financial support is you, the listener, via the Tip Jar on our website.

One Man’s Jazz has been part of Taint Radio since January 2012 and revels in the freedom to program whatever it wants.  A new show is heard each week at taintradio.org on Thursday at  9 pm ET, repeated Mondays at 4 am ET.  Check the Taint Radio schedule for other time slots for archived shows. The One Man’s Jazz website keeps about ten months of shows and playlist for your convenience.

Tell your friends about taintradio.org.

PS:  you can now listen to One Man's Jazz on mixcloud.com, too .
