2015 Jazz

2015 Jazz

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global chill chart, 1st in the global eclectic chart, 2nd in the global jazz chart, 2nd in the global chillout chart and 2nd in the global downtempo chart.

This collection isn't necessarily a 'best of 2015,' it's just some of my favorite jazz tunes from the past year.

It begins with one of my favorite albums of the year in any genre - The Thompson fields by The Maria Schneider Orchestra. The title track is remarkable.
