Best of 2005

Here's the obligatory "Best Albums of 2005" list. Of course, in many ways, this list is completely arbitrary. I usually get pretty excited about any new release from any artist I love. But when it comes down to it, these are some of the discs I found myself playing the most or telling my friends about. These sounds will still be fresh in the new year and years beyond.

Here we go:

1) Marc Johnson: Shades of Jade (ECM) [buy it]
2) Jonathan Kreisberg: New For Now (Criss Cross) [buy it]
3) Dave Holland Big Band: Overtime (Dare2/Sunnyside) [buy it]
4) Robert Glasper: Canvas (Blue Note) [buy it]
5) Bill Cunliffe: Imaginacion (Torii) [buy it]
6) Alex Sipiagin: Returning (Criss Cross) [buy it]
7) Bill Frisell: East/West (Nonesuch) [buy it]
8) Gregg August: Late August (Iacuessa) [buy it]
9) Thelonious Monk / John Coltrane: At Carnegie Hall (Blue Note) [buy it]
10) Terence Blanchard: Flow (Blue Note) [buy it]
