CD of the Month (January)

As usual there has been no shortage of CDs for review this month and, in any other month, just about each and every one could have got the nod.
As it is, my choice goes to
The Jeff Hamilton Trio - Great American Songs (Capri Records).
Closely followed in no particular order by
Kenny Wheeler - Songs For Quintet (ECM).
Tom Green Septet - Skyline * (Spark).
Alex Garnett - Andromeda (Whirlwind).
Wildflower Sextet - Wildflower. (Jellymould).
These are purely my choices, I'm sure our other reviewers/readers will have their own ideas so please let us have them.
Lance.
* The Tom Green Septet are at the Jazz Café (Newcastle) on Tuesday Feb. 24.
