As 2010 draws to a close, I am taking this opportunity to look back at some of the new, standout recordings I've encountered over the course of the year. Some of my new favorites—like Paul Motian's Lost In A Dream (ECM, 2010), the new three-disc collection from the SFJAZZ Collective, and People Time: The Complete Recordings (Sunnyside, 2010), from Stan Getz and Kenny Barron—spent a good deal of time in my CD player, but never made it into my review pile. Other highly praised discs, like Vijay Iyer's first solo piano disc and Charles Lloyd's Mirror (ECM, 2010) are on my holiday wishlist, but haven't made it into my hands as of this writing. Over the course of this year, I had the opportunity to write 100+ reviews for All About Jazz and these were the nine discs that stood out:
