Un 2015 ricco di ottimi dischi e di ottimi concerti, quello che emerge dalle scelte dei collaboratori di AllAboutJazz Italia.

Alcuni nomi, come leggerete, sono ricorrenti (Tim Berne, Simone Graziano, Steve Coleman, etc.), ma è la ricchezza di spunti e suggerimenti che il quadro complessivo offre quello che racconta un anno davvero speciale. Buona lettura.

Ah... e non dimenticate i CD della settimana che abbiamo selezionato negli ultimi mesi!
