Bestofjazz.org aims at helping its visitors to (re-)discover amazing jazz records. For every year – starting in 1955 – we will publish a blog post and a related playlist covering 20 albums released that specific year.
For every album selected, we will hand-pick a track, and share as much information and links as possible to make an extra investigation of a preferred artist or record easier.
All the albums are listed in no rank at all. The ranking of those 20 albums is always random, as well as in the playlist: play it in order or shuffle it, we just hope to only provide you with a surprisingly good next sound!
The yearly selection are based on the albums’ release date. We try to make sure we have the correct one through the artists and records labels websites. But if you find any mistake or correction to be made, please contact us!
