Can't think that I've left my first resume of the years new releases that I've enjoyed so late before. However, here it goes; with the following proviso. Like the last couple of years new releases have been subject to all sorts of delays to release, albums recorded by various artist forced to record in seperate locations because of the covid restrictions which have taken a long time to put together, and, I susspect, unavailability due to problems with gigging to support sales. (on this subject one of the bands recently promoted by Phonic FM admitted to us that they expected to make at least as much from 'merch' as they did from their fees at venues)
Jazz Defenders - King Phoenix.
Ethan Iverson - Every note is true.
Jonathan Blake - Homeward bound.
Goldstein, Bernstein, Stewart: Peerpetual pendulum.
Kibrom Bihane: Here and there.
Joey Alexander: Origin.
Charles Lloyd Trio: Chapel
Al Swainger's Pointless Beauty: Hearts full of grace.
