Doug Collette's Best Releases Of 2020

Given the challenging year that was 2020, "Best of..." lists may turn out to be the high points of the last twelve months. Certainly there were times in the spring when it seemed as though a drought of new music might be inescapable, but as summer turned to fall, the titles kept rolling out, with the usual clockwork regularity (almost). Here, then, is music worth remembering, released during a time mostly worth forgetting.
