Vintage CDs of 2016


This past year BSH has reviewed over 200 CDs, usually from the current highfliers as well as those seeking to get a foot on the ladder. I've also had to bypass at least as many from this latter category. At times, I'm tempted to suggest they're climbing the wrong ladder but why should I? I'm not God and, who knows? maybe one day it will turn out that they are!  Surprisingly (or perhaps not) very few albums I get for review (or reviews of) are from the classic jazz masters. Those that are are, invariably, previously unreleased, newly discovered items. Historically as important as the Dead Sea Scrolls but still very much alive musically.

Here are those items
*This wasn't sent for review - I picked it up in a charity shop but, as it's such a fine album (Chris Potter on sax), I decided to include it anyway!
