Top 10 Jazz Albums, September 2012

by Seth Colter Walls  |  September 5, 2012

Jazz musicians -- and fans -- have been awfully busy in 2012 so far. Christian Scott debuted his radical new approach to world/jazz/rock fusion, Miguel Zenón teamed up with Laurent Coq for some French-Latin innovations, Ravi Coltrane came in with a career best and Lionel Loueke offered some unreleased cuts from one of his early sessions. Oh, and Jenny Scheinman riffed with Wilco's improv-guitar phenom to concoct a fantasia about P.J. Harvey, while Branford Marsalis' current quartet came back with something to prove. These and other current releases -- like the modern classical-influenced work of Tim Kuhl -- show that swing and other improvised music boast a malleable spirit like few other genres today. Dig in.
