Now Playing, Part 2 of 2







As part 2 of this week's 2 "Now Playing" posts (part 1 here), these are the dozens of CDs that started playing on AccuJazz in 2010 so far. Again, most are new, so you can catch them on the New Releases Channel, and many are featured on the Main Channel as well. As always, the album title is a link to purchase the disc, and I've honored my personal favorites with the double asterisk.
