Who Created the Best Jazz of 2016?

Dec 27, 2016

Every year, an all-star panel of musicians and critics join the show to go through a painfully short list of the best jazz of the year. Will this year be vocalist-heavy? Any repeat winners, or any newcomers? Is there an overall sound to the year?


  • Gene Seymour - Film, television, and music critic
  • Jen Allen - Pianist and composer, whose latest album is Pieces of Myself
  • Noah Baerman - Pianist, educator, author, and composer, whose latest album is Ripples

Colin McEnroe and Jonathan McNicol contributed to this show.
