KZSC Jazz Charts

This week has been a little off in regards to the mail, so I’ve decided to do the charting early to get into a new flow of things. Additionally this week, I’m welcoming the Jazz Director intern Jared Frazier (Jamfrazi) into the circle. He will be gradually taking over the department by early April. I’m looking forward to another week of music.  Here’s this week’s charts.

Jazz Charts 1/22

After a wonderful holiday and inherent lack of mail, the jazz charts only have one new add: Jose James’ “No Beginning No End” which I am very excited to have. This album is where genres break down and the artist can be truly appreciated for his cutting edge approach to jazz, soul, and beyond.

Holy-Grail-Ride-the-Void

Loud Rock Charts: 1/22

In this week’s sexy edition of new Loud Rock, we see Holy Grail release one of the best album of the year so far with Ride the Void. It’s in the same vein as new classic metal, with a thrashy spin thrown on it. If you’re into some older stuff, like Judas Priest or Iron Maiden, definitely check this out.

On the other side of the genre map, black metal outfit Lightning Swords of Death release a very solid effort with Baphometic Chaosivm. Definitely check this stuff out. January is shaping up to be a really great month for metal.
