DJ2tee’s Top Twenty Albums 2015

As 2015 comes to a close it’s time to post DJ2tee’s Top Twenty Albums of the year. Naturally musical taste is a purely subjective thing. So if you are looking for a selection of popular albums, better stop reading now.  There is no Adele or Justin Bieber or Coldplay. Not knocking those “celebrities”, just not in my musical bag!

Hopefully, you will appreciate the music I have chosen which generally has a jazz flavour, but includes other genres. And, if you are not familiar with the artists, please check them out. Remember, this is no definitive list, I could have chosen a completely different selection, but these are some of my favourites.

I have chosen not to make comment on the individual albums, it’s best to let the music do the talking!  Lastly, the albums are listed in no particular order, they are all amazing in their own way. If you want some more information on the artist, just click on the cover picture.
