From jazz to disco/dance, from alternative rock to world music, 2013 proved to be a really fruitful one. It was a banner year for good and colorful music that showed that audiences really respond to good music and this year, unlike many in recent times, it overflowed with such. It was a great year for older acts and for new music as well. These are some of the releases that kind of marked the year 2013 for me.
Jazz is a continuing revelation. The best show I ever attended was the
Roots Picnic at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia, or was it Robert
Glasper's Experiment at Lincoln Center, or was it Chick Corea with
Brian Blade at Oberlin College? Most of all I enjoy playing guitar and
composing beats with my Brooklyn-based group Space Captain.
