This is actually the first post on this site. However, there are a lot of posts here, most of the posts were originally posted at either Me, Myself. Music or Mysteries or FreeWheelin’ Music Safari. The purpose of this site is to focus on jazz and new age music instead of several different genres.
So with that in mind, as we approach the end of the first half of 2014 here’s a list of the top albums that I listened to this year. Some of the albums were released in 2013, but they were on the charts in 2014. They may not necessarily everybody else’s top albums, but I never like the very top of the pack. I do think that a couple of these albums did make it to the top of the JazzWeek chart! So here’s is the list with links to the post about the artist and album….
