Not gonna lie; in the context of this column, sometimes I cheat. In theory, I should hold off until November to create my year-end Best-Of list. But given the wealth of riches that is the modern jazz scene, I’ve resorted to cobbling together a decent blueprint for that end-of-year column around August. So, yeah, a little early. I figure I can add and subtract as necessary based on what pops up before the year has seen its end. I hadn’t anticipated—perhaps naïvely—a September like this one. The moment this column is submitted to my editor, I’m headed back to the drawing board, because this month has rewritten the entire picture. That’s my problem.
