Arturo Gómez’s Favorite 22 of 2022
As Music Director for KUVO Jazz, I’m fortunate to hear the newest arrivals first which is why I host New Music Monday beginning at Noon every Monday. Here are my favorite 22 recordings of 2022 placed in alphabetical order, I chose not to rank them. These are not necessarily the best 22 albums of the year—that’s a different list, but they are the ones I enjoyed the most. Thank you! Arturo Gómez
Feel free to email me if you wish to learn more about any of the 22 entries on my list at firstname.lastname@example.org.
