Five times each week, jazz.com highlights a Song of the Day, drawn from the best of the recent releases. We hunt far and wide for finest new tracks, covering not just well known artists and major labels, but also listening to small indie releases and self-produced CDs, as well as deserving overseas projects too often neglected by the US-based jazz media. Sometimes we even dip into blues or world music releases that we believe would be of interest to jazz fans.
Below are links to the reviews for all the tracks selected as Song of the Day in May. Click here, for a complete list of all the recordings featured as Song of the Day since the inception of jazz.com.
