AllAboutJazz has published my annual comprehensive review of goings on in the jazz world in 2019, things great, things odd, things interesting - and sometimes tragic.
International Jazz Day brought its biggest stage
to Australia. An important but long-dormant jazz mecca was revived in a
coast-to-coast move. ECM Records celebrated a golden year. The music and its
makers figured prominently on the big screen.
The National Endowment for the
Arts welcomed four new NEA Jazz Masters. The jazz world said
farewell to one other, who was among the many industry-associated musicians
and figures who passed away during the year, some under tragic circumstances.
You can read it all here.
Best wishes for the new year.
