Soulandjazz.com Presents:
Continuum – A Journey Through Jazz
Episode 38: “The Best of 2010?”

Hosted & Produced by J. Scott Fugate, “The Jazz Evangelist”

Happy 2011! This is my first show of the New Year, and thus I thought it appropriate to provide a retrospective of 2010 . . . however, I’m a little uncomfortable being the arbiter of other people’s taste – so, three weeks ago I asked a question of our SoulandJazz.com listening audience to suggest their favorite artists & CDs from 2010.

Here is the first result of that survey – 12 artists & tracks that were rather unexpected and free to download here & now:  http://bit.ly/hQ63dV

The response was surprising. I did not receive one comment regarding any Straight Ahead, Mainstream, Modern or Avant Garde Jazz artist . . . the comments referred entirely to Funk, Fusion and Acid Jazz with a heavy dose of Soul – but if that’s what the people proclaim to be the best of 2010, then that’s what I’ll give them.

To that end, I present twelve tracks for your listening enjoyment chosen by SoulandJazz.com audience members as the best artist & CD’s of 2010 – including tracks by JD73, Claudia Hayden, Live Tropical Fish, Tom Glide & The Luv Allstars, Brian Culbertson, Derek Frank, Zo!, Incognito, Richard Earnshaw, Randy Skinner & Diesler.

More artists were indeed suggested, so I’ll be doing another “best of” show next week to fit in those that were left out. If your favorite Jazz release from 2010 is not among this grouping – then please feel free to give me YOUR picks for best artist, song or CD release during 2010 by writing to Scott at SoulandJazz.com . . . and I’ll try to include them in Part II! But right now, get ready for some 2010 nostalgia as we kick up the grooves of yesteryear before they actually become retro. Enjoy the ride!
