Bestofjazz.org aims to help its visitors discover amazing jazz records. To do so, we review all the new jazz releases that we believe are worth your time. We also create monthly selections of jazz albums to be released in the coming days or weeks. This way, you will always be up to date with the newest releases and informed on what to wait for.

Every year, we publish a dedicated post and a related playlist. It covers the 10 best albums of the year, plus 10 extra tracks from 10 additional records. The playlists are on Spotify for now; more streaming options will be provided soon. For every album selected, we hand-pick a track and share as much information and links about it as possible. This makes it easier to investigate a preferred artist or record further. All the albums are listed in no rank order at all. The ranking of the albums and tracks is always random. It is the same for the playlists; play them in order or shuffle them—the next track will always be surprisingly good!
The yearly selections are based on the albums’ release dates. We try to make sure we have the correct date using the artists’ and record labels’ websites, but if you find any mistakes or corrections to be made, then please contact us.
