It didn't take much thought to compose this list, perhaps because the inclusions run the gamut from finely-produced studio sessions to equally inspired live recordings (and much in between). And more so than in recent years, the playability of all these albums will surely equal their durability as time marches on, which is not necessarily a direct reflection of the intensity of hearing them (though they appear to be in descending order of same).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
