Despite all the continuing crises in the world, great creative music flourished in 2021 as it always seems to do. There were some artists like Wadada Leo Smith and Vijay Iyer who continued their regular flow of excellent releases, other veterans like Charnett Moffett and Pharoah Sanders who came out with powerful statements and new voices like Rodrigo Faina and Marques Carroll who made impressive debuts.
