This show was 1st in the global jazz chart, 1st in the global chill chart, 2nd in the global chillout chart and 2nd in the global downtempo chart.
This mix is less of a best jazz recordings of 2017 and more of a mix of jazz that I enjoyed in 2017. The year was anchored by two spectacular recordings by Joseph Shabason and Colin Stetson. I saw Stetson at a small club and was blown away by his sound and technique.
