With the year's end fast approaching, JAZZIZ's digital content editor Brian Zimmerman and website editor Matt Micucci pick their five of their favorite jazz albums of 2019. The list includes a keyboard legend's celebration of the passionate music of Spain, a rockstar's impressive incursion into the jazz world, that latest work from one of London's hottest jazz acts and much more.

The London jazz scene is in the midst of a major revival. But for all the seismic activity currently underway across the pond, perhaps the biggest ripple-maker at the moment is 35-year-old London native Shabaka Hutchings. The saxophonist is at the center of the trio The Comet Is Coming (along with keyboardist Dan Leavers and drummer Max Hallet), whose second studio album, Trust In The Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery, is a cosmic exploration of jazz, electronica, funk, dubb-step and reggae that lives up to its metaphysical name. The band is capable of generating grooves so deep they'll move you at a cellular level, affecting your heart and mind alike.
