A Blog Supreme's Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2012

'Tis the season...for top 10 lists!  As various folks review 2012, we'll be seeing more "Best of" and "Top" lists, which is great, because I really like these.  (For example, they give me an idea of what has escaped my radar and what I need to catch up on.)  A Blog Supreme just came out with their top 10 jazz albums of 2012.  Not a very strong showing of saxophone-heavy recordings, to my mind, but we'll be exploring more "best of 2012" lists on AJS in the weeks to come.  If you want to see the Blog Supreme list with music samples, go here.
