January 2, 2020 #1133 – The 2019 Favourite Albums Show

It’s that time of year when the “best-of” lists start showing up everywhere. One Man’s Jazz is no exception; I’ve been compiling a list for many years now, however I call it my “favourites” list because I don’t know if I’m qualified to say that one thing is better than the next. I’ll leave that for the critics to make that choice. Just about every artist deserves props for making a recording. I just pick out the recordings  played in the course of 52 weeks of shows for Taint Radio, albums that I have and will come back to for enjoyment. My most favourite? Four recordings that really speak to me: Bassist Carlos Bica’s “I Am The Escaped One”, pianist Kris Davis’ “Diatom Ribbons”, Hot Heros’ “Day After The Rodeo”, and the Russ Lossing Trio’s “Ways”. Hey, they’re all great! Go buy some albums!!!!

And thanks to all the artists, labels and promoters who make the music available, and THANK YOU for listening to One Man’s Jazz.  (Note:  I’ll list all of my choices on a separate post.)
