Best of 2012 Streaming Radio from AccuJazz
(Published: January 25, 2013)
Savvy jazz listeners spent much of the past month poring over dozens of "Best of 2012" lists, left only to wonder what the vaunted music actually sounded like. To satisfy curious listeners and highlight the excellent music, AccuJazz Internet radio has created a "Best Jazz of 2012" channel playing the most critically-acclaimed jazz albums released last year. The streaming channel is free to listen to and available 24 hours a day at AccuJazz.com
The channel's programming is based on Francis Davis' Rhapsody.com critics poll (formerly of the Village Voice), which asked 119 jazz critics to list their top albums of the year. Therefore, listeners will hear Vijay Iyer's' first-place-winning "Accelerando" more often than Josh Berman's 50th-ranking (but also excellent) "There Now." The playlist features a strikingly diverse line-up of albums, including Wadada Leo Smith's epic avant-garde civil rights tribute, "Ten Freedom Summers," Robert Glasper's zeitgeist-defining jazz/R&B hybrid, "Black Radio," and some decades-old, newly unearthed live recordings from Keith Jarrett and Bill Evans.
AccuJazz.com's Best Jazz of 2012 channel is perfect for listeners who are looking to brush up on the best new jazz, or simply want to mix up their listening habits.
