Here's the first in a two-part recap of some of the jazz artists and albums that made a mark in 2012. Not really a 'Best Of ' as there's so much good music to fit in just over two hours (and besides you can check iTunes for that!), this is a personal selection devised by the minds of The Jazz Meet resident DJs. Some of our favourites over the past year mixed with some of the tunes that we dropped at our weekly live event. This first half is an assorted bag of goodness, with newcomers like Jacaranda Muse and GoGo Penguin rubbing shoulders with established acts like Nostalgia 77 and The Rongetz Foundation. Sublime music from Samuel Yirga and Roberto Fonseca also features as well as a choice cut from one of our bands of the year, The Greg Foat Group. We hope you enjoy this first mix, and please keep a look out for the next part to drop in a few days. There's so many more tracks we need to pull out and play!
