Dave Fries' Top 10 Albums Of 2013

Dec 24, 2013

Dave Fries of A Taste of Jazz's favorite albums of 2013, listed in no particular order: 

  • Dave Bennett's Don't Be That Way

Dave Bennett shows that his skills and interests go far beyond that of channeling any of his stylistic predecessors like Benny Goodman, Pete Fountain, Artie Shaw, et al. Once a member of the original Hot Club Detroit, Bennett stays within the mainstream repertoire, covering several go Goodman’s most famous records. This album blazes its own path with Dave’s clarinet skills while still paying tribute to his mentors.

There were some terrific albums released this year. These are the ones that stayed in my player a little longer.

10. Laura Mvula - Sing To The Moon

9. Foxyen - We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace And Magic

8. Volcano Choir - Repave

7. Neko Case - The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight...

6. Rhye - Woman

5. Okkervil River - Silver Gymnasium

4. Arcade Fire - Reflektor

3. Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires Of The City
