This episode features some of my favourite recordings released in 2019, chosen from a year of some pretty damn fine music. It always seems that I tend toward bassist-led sessions, and that's the case again, with great recordings from Carlos Bica, Torbjorn Zetterberg and the Miles Perkins Quartet for starters. As well, more women artists appear on my list each year, including Kris Davis' popular Diatom Ribbons . New releases sampled this week come from Gordon Grdina's Nomad Trio, Poland's Wojtek Mazolewski and and the English trio, Somersaults.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
