Here is my top dozen for 2013 (with a feminine bent and in alphabetical order). Women remain unjustly underrepresented as instrumentalists in jazz. Hopefully these superb records will help improve that disparity by introducing listeners to these outstandingly creative artists and their stimulating work.

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!
