2019 was another eventful year in Jazz that delivered a renewed global creativity, the unearthing of lost albums from iconic figures, stellar efforts from emerging young players, and strong contributions from reliable veterans, both vocally and instrumentally. This is Glide's effort, a wide swath of 20 remarkable albums that touch on several aspects of jazz.  We salute these artists, knowing the choices were difficult to make as there were many more worthy efforts beyond just these.

The Comet Is Coming – Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery (Impulse!) –  The spiritual music made by John and Alice Coltrane and Pharaoh Sanders in the late ‘60s is surely an inspiration for the UK jazz trio, and, like those iconic figures. TCIC is pushing the envelope into the 21st century with spiritual jazz that owes as much to the ‘60s sound as it does to futuristic music like that from Bladerunner. This is the debut of King Shabaka (Shabaka Hutchings) on saxophone/bass clarinet, Danalogue (Dan Leavers) on keys/synth, and Betamax (Max Hallett) on drums.
