The Best Jazz of 2008

More than ever, the best jazz is coming from small labels, and more than ever the best draws a decent slice from the dynamics of rock and pop music without itself being a commercial venture.

An inside-out jazz pianist, playing duets with the cream of a downtown crop and playing with her trio. All arresting music.

Clearly a very talented pianist, but with a tendency to get into what's not in the current sense a groove. Samey.
