There’s so much new music out right now, and jazz is no exception to that.  And there’s still no way we’ve invented yet to find the best jazz, except to spend the time (hours and hours) to review and play something from every single release that comes through the door.  Sometimes established artists release music that just doesn’t hit, and sometimes unknown artists come up with the most amazing tracks.   Jazz Week posts a chart of the top jazz music being played across the U.S.  It helps sort it out!
