Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Questi i migliori dischi dell'anno? Risposta complicata perché nonostante la massa imponente di musica, fruibile in tutte le forme e in tutti modi possibili, si ha la sensazione che manchi qualcosa (o molto), che siano precluse realtà musicali periferiche rispetto ai normali canali di distribuzione ma importanti dal punto di vista della testimonianza e della valenza artistica.

Eccoli comunque i dodici dischi che per un verso o per l'altro hanno segnato gli ascolti di un 2016 ricco di proposte di alto livello, tra conferme, giovani emergenti e qualche piacevole sorpresa.
