YOUR Picks For Favorite 2010 Jazz Albums!

For a few days over the past weekend, I asked people online two questions. The first one was, "What is your favorite album from 2010?" and the second was "Why was it your favorite?"

These were pretty basic questions but I discovered music that I didn't have a chance to listen to during the past year. I hope that you enjoy reading the answers. Maybe a recommendation will pique your interest to check out a couple of the albums, too. :)

Donna M’s Unconventional Top 5 Albums for 2010 

Motéma Music asked me for a "Top 5" list of 2010 Jazz albums a couple of weeks ago. The following five albums got the most repeated play in my mp3 player for 2010. I figure that’s as legitimate a reason to qualify for a “Top 5” list as anything else I’ve read this year. :)

They are listed in alphabetical order by last name or group name.

 Edo Castro

 “Sacred Graffiti” [Passion Star Records]

I didn’t know much about Edo Castro before I got this album.  I have since concluded that he is a phenomenal bassist that created a fully-textured, multi-layered album called “Sacred Graffiti”.  Listening to this 16 track album takes me through a “Day in The Life” kind of experience, much like King Britt’s “When the Funk Hits the Fan” did back in the late ‘90s.

Your Thoughts on Miles Davis 19 Years After His Death...

Has it really been 19 years since Miles Davis passed away on 28 September 1991?

After reading "Miles: The Autobiography" in the summer of 1991, I was determined to see him perform live in concert.

It didn't quite work out that way for me; I was caught off-guard when his death was announced in the news on 28 September of that same year.

My childhood household was not filled with jazz music.  I didn't grow up really knowing the Miles Davis "mystique". A lot of Miles Davis's music and career is as new to me as any other newbie to the genre.

I asked my Twitter friends a few questions yesterday regarding Mr. Davis and his legacy.

The responses are intriguing, personal, reflective and opinionated. I posted the questions and answers below ~
