2012 was a great year for new jazz releases. This show is only part 1 of some of the memorable jazz albums released this year. We lead off with Robert Glasper and Black Radio. A crossover album that hit the charts in both Jazz and R&B. Other notable releases were from Kenny Garrett, Branford Marsalis, Miguel Zenon, Billy Hart, Kris Allen, Greg Abate and more. One of my favorite CD's and concerts of the year was from Pat Metheny's Unity Band that I had the pleasure of seeing three times! Lot's more great albums were released, and I will play more in next week's podcast.
