Jazz Charts & Adds – End of April

Jazz is funky and sweet and thriving here at KZSC! Jeff Richman’s latest album,​ an awesome, sometimes dissonant exploration into stadium-rock influenced jazz, with funky, grooving bass lines, stands out as one that does not feature heavy Hammond organ. French guitarist Michael Valeanu and Frankye Kelly give flavors of the past with so much Hammond organ Jimmy Smith would be proud.
Top Ten:​
1 BRIAN BLADE FELLOWSHIP   Season of Changes    Verve
2ANAT COHEN    Claroscuro    Anzic
3 BORN TO WANDER    Born To Wander     BTW
4 JOHN ZORN   The Song Project (Live)    Tzadik
5 LE BOUEF BROTHERS A House Without A Door     LBM
6 TAKUYA KURODA   Rising Son     Blue Note
7 ADA ROVATTI   Disguise     Piloo
9 AKUA DIXON    Akua Dixon    Akua’s Music
