Every little bit of the year 2018 will soon take form as memory—first recent, then distant—but the fine music gifted to us in those twelve months will be forever present, living on in ears, hearts and minds. I had the pleasure of hearing north of 400 albums this past year, and I had the privilege of reviewing more than 75 of those for All About Jazz. These are the bunch from that review list that left the strongest impression. (Note: this list is NOT ranked. It's essentially in reverse chronological order of review publication).
