By most measures 2017 was not the best of years. In the jazz world however, the creativity and dedication of musicians worldwide was a beacon of positivity and purpose. Matt Wilson and Jane Ira Bloom made superb connections between poetry and jazz, new artists like Simon Millerd and Laura Campisi made strong first impressions and veteran powerhouses like Vijay Iyer and Wadada Leo Smith kept on doing what they do. Here are the 12 recordings that moved me the most in the past year.
