Mainstream/modern CDs of the Year

International
Walter Smith III - TWIO.
Burak Bedikyan - New Beginning.
Jorge Nila - Tenor Time.
NYSQ - Heaven Steps to Seven.

National
Paul Moran - Smokin' B3. Vol 2: Still Smokin'.
Dan Banks Quintet - Simulated Cities.
Jean Toussaint Allstar 6tet - Brother Raymond.
Dave O'Higgins Trio - Tenors of Our Time.

Once again, in no particular order and, just because an album is in National as opposed to International, it doesn't mean they are Championship as opposed to Premiership - it is purely geographical and all eight choices are just about as good as it gets in either division.
Lance.

PS: I must point out that, as the year draws to a close, there are still many of you who have yet to submit their suggestions for CD/Gig of the Year - and that includes members of our in-house team - so, in-house, out-house or that other house - get your styli out!
Lance.
