The Best Jazz on Bandcamp: October 2020 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

At some point during these monthly columns, you will read about an album that makes a liar out of me. You see, I am supposed to be bringing you the best jazz on Bandcamp; and yet every month, there is an album or three that bears little resemblance to what’s typically thought of as jazz. But that is a defining characteristic of the modern jazz scene—that musicians who came up through the jazz tradition are expanding their creative horizons to express themselves with music that leaves the traditional sounds of jazz far behind, and the theory and practice of jazz is simply one of many ingredients that come together to form an uncategorizable sonic experience. This month’s column is dominated by those kinds of albums. I have never been a bigger liar than I will be in this column.
