Mine of 09We've reached the last month of the year, so why not look back?
The sixteen tracks on this compilation are probably the ones I listened the most to in 2009. I made a ranking of my ten favourite CDs (to be found on the right side of your screen too) and added some excellent albumtracks to complete the usual number of sixteen.
And it has become an eclectic list I must admit: metal (Diablo Swing Orchestra, Les Claypool), Bollywood (A.R. Rahman), chanson (Vaya con Dios, Melody Gardot)... but they all feel jazzy and funky.
Always be aware, the titles in this tracklisting are in random order, because I can't put one CD above the other. Nevertheless Fat Freddy's Drop, Kyteman and Chrisette Michele hardly ever left my CD player...
Of course you don't have to agree with my taste. You can tell me which tracks or albums are absolute inferior to you, and which ones I've overlooked. I even invite you to do so, and go to the comments. But if you happen to have the same taste as I do, please go to the poll and vote for your favourites.
Enjoy the music, and have a marvellous holiday season.
