April was fantastic jazz wise. So let’s jump right into the top albums of the month.
Bryan and the Aardvark: Sounds from the Deep field
My favorite album for the month of April, I loved the melodies, the atmospheric vibe, and the instrumentation and focus of each song was different. This was a bold and daring project from a bold and daring group. Can’t recommend this group and this album enough.
Matt Holman: Tenth Muse
This album won’t be for everyone. This is definitely a more “out” experience, but if you have the patience/ ear for it this album is a joy. I love songs like “Fragment 147” and “Fragment 4”. Matt Holman continues to push us past our comfort zone in the best way possible.I usually have 3 top albums and a couple others listed as “Best of the Rest”. However, this month I felt the other selections were all very equal to each other so I have just two standout and three under “Best of the Rest”
Best of the Rest:
Anne Mette Iverson: Ternion Quartet
Mike McGinnis: Recurring Dreams
