The Best Jazz on Bandcamp: April 2022

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

It’s the same ebb and flow every month: When I’ve finally completed the exhaustive process of compiling a short list of recommended albums from a list far longer than the space allows, I think to myself, “I need some time off before I can pick back up again for the next month.” But then I casually play a couple of recordings, hear something that infuses me with raw excitement, and off I go, diving into the next batch of new releases. Every month I rave about the richness of the modern jazz scene, and how the diversity of music is matched by the diversity of the musicians creating it, and every month that’s pretty much the sentiment I express… because, every month, it’s true. April’s recommendations are as true to form as any.
