As always with end of year lists, my choice is limited to those albums I’ve heard....a tiny fraction of what’s new.....so there will be plenty of good stuff I’ve missed! However, here’s a selection of the new albums that have given me most pleasure over the past year (in no particular order).
Julia Shreitl Nord.Rand.Band: Nordic Walking (Session Work)
Zeno De Rossi Shtik: The Manne I Love (El Gallo Rojo)
Sebastien Texier Trio: Don’t Forget You Are An Animal (Cristal)
The Nice Guy Trio: Here Comes The Nice Guy Trio (Porto Franco)
The Light: Afekty (Multikulti)
Brick Quartet: Brick Quartet (Chopstick)
