The Best of 2006

The Jazz Set
Host: Banzai Bill White

Dec. 5 to Dec. 11

Program Note: Next Week—Top 30 From The Best in Classic Jazz

I learned years ago from Mr. Michael Gourrier that you never “rank” your Top 30 list. These cuts are in no particular order, though I will say that I was really impressed with five of these albums in particular: Joe Locke and Geoffery Keezer’s “Live in Seattle,” Christian Scott’s “Rewind That,” Kenny Garrett’s “Beyond the Wall,” Anton Schwartz’s “Radiant Blue,” and Ted Nash’s “In The Loop.” All the albums presented this week, though, are EXCELLENT albums. They would all make excellent additions to your Jazz library. I really enjoyed putting this show together. Next week I will be producing my favorite show of the year—the Best in Classic Jazz. It’s going to be lots of fun.
