Hiromi Place To Be "Place to Be musically traces Hiromi's travels and recognition of the "pure and positive energy" she receives from her audiences. Ten of the dozen tracks are new original compositions... Is it too early to talk about the best recordings of 2010?" -JazzPolice

Gil Evans Orchestra: Blues In Orbit
David Sanborn: Only Everything
Ahmad Jamal: A Quiet Time

Lionel Loueke Mwaliko Performances by Angelique Kidjo, Esperanza Spalding & Richard Bona
"There's no mistaking Mwaliko as pulsing, modern jazz. But its language feels practiced, like a garment broken in over years; at its best, it strips exotic sounds of their alienating weirdness to reveal something intimate and fascinating underneath. Try it on for yourself." -NPR
More From Blue Note!
Norah Jones: The Fall
Sean Chambers: Ten Til Midnight
Robert Glasper: Double Booked

Dee Dee Bridgewater To Billie "Dee Dee's vocal sculptures, whether caressing, tantalizing or powerful, are backed by her long-time musical director, pianist Edel Gomez. Gomez's arrangements also take full advantage of the remarkable reeds man James Carter and one of the best rhythm sections in jazz today: Christian McBride and Lewis Nash. In all honesty, all tracks are worth the listener's time and money." - The Urban Music Scene
