Rounding up the "Best Jazz of 2019" lists


Sign in to view read count
It's that time of year again, as jazz journalists, DJs, critics, podcasters, and bloggers are publishing their annual “Best Of" lists. And once again, for the 13th consecutive year, St. Louis Jazz Notes eschews the compilation of such a list, instead offering readers a meta-list with links to all of the other “Best Jazz of 2019" lists that can be located online.

As usual, the meta-list is alphabetized by writers' names. When a list was collaborative or presented as a staff-written project, the name of the publication or media outlet is used instead, with the writers' names noted if available. This post will be updated multiple times over the next several weeks as more lists become available.

Here's what's out there so far: Active scouting for more lists will continue for at least a couple more weeks, but your input is welcome, too. If you've seen any other 2019 year-end jazz lists available online that aren't mentioned here, please use the comments (or send StLJN an email) to share the information. And if you like, please feel free also to use the comments to discuss your own favorite jazz releases, shows and moments of 2019.

Finally, if you'd like to re-visit StLJN's past “best of" list round-ups, here are the meta-lists for 2007 (parts 1 and 2), 2008 (parts 1 and 2), , 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.
