Nick Davies Best Releases of 2016

In terms of jazz 2016 has been a strong year with a number of solid releases and this has made the task of choosing twelve releases all that more difficult. The selections I have made take the listening on a journey from Matthew Bourne and his experimental sounds of the Moog to Nat Birchall more traditional saxophone playing. 2016 also saw the emergence of young talent such as Elliot Galvin as well as some great independent record labels and it would difficult to ignore their contribution to the year so this is the reason for their inclusion I really hope you enjoy the selections as much as I have listening to them.
