Downbeat Critics Award

Tonight we’ll dip deeply into the top 5 albums
garnering votes from the Downbeat magazine’s Best
Album Of The Year award. From Herbie Hancock’s homage
to Joni Mitchell to Maria Schneider’s brilliant
writing for her sterling orchestra - from Charles
Lloyd’s organic improv to Michael Brecker’s farewell
statement, and a meeting between two musical compadres
sharing a set of pithy duets.
