Bud Kopman , Picks Gernerations Quartet , Flow , Best release 2016
Budd Kopman's Best Releases of 2016
Of the seventy or so albums I was fortunate to review this year (with many still waiting in the wings), the releases below (in chronological order) are those that moved me the most and hence that I remember the clearest, even after a year. The quality of the music is uniformly high, and leaving something off this list was a bit difficult. Of course, reactions to music are completely subjective, so one man's gold is another's lead—your mileage may vary.
Michael Jefry Stevens: Flow
Robert Bush Picks Joe Fonda Satoko Fujii recording , Duet as one the top Jazz Albums 2016
Satoko Fujii & Joe Fonda, “Duet” (Long Song Records 2016)
It’s hard to believe that these two haven’t been collaborating forever. The degree of intimate listening and deep exchange between Fujii’s piano and the woody, natural-sounding bass of Fonda is breathtaking. Unbelievably, this live album was only the second time they played.
