Alan Chase · "Best Of List" for 2004 · Dec 31st

I have to admit, this was a hard list for me to put together. It seems to me that a lot of what has been coming out in jazz lately, just doesn’t grab me. Must be a sign of advancing age.

Matt Merewitz · Top 11 Recordings for 2004 · Dec 30th

I’m in the world of college radio as a DJ and genre director at a station that has a ridiculous amount of jazz that doesn’t get played often enough (Carnegie Mellon University). I am honored to have my picks featured in this listing. Hope you dig on what you’ve heard and dig deeper what you haven’t.
