When you think of all of the music that comes your way in a single year's time, all attempts to compile an all-encompassing or comprehensive list seems to be difficult attempt. 2017 was a year full of work, travels, books, writing, achievements and plenty of music and new people. The list here presents some of the releases that I had crossed path with and had an emotional effect on me. As a result I listened to these the most.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
