James Johnson Album Cover

James Johnson

I tinkered with this list more than in any other year but in the end this is what I have settled on. Regardless of positioning, my ears had a good year with a varied list of artists dominating listening time over old favorites from the past.
Looking over the releases I may have missed or neglected and at how hard it was for me to settle on all thirty placings I feel this will be a year I will continue to explore well into 2013 and beyond.

Hope everybody had a great 2012 and we get another solid year of music in 2013!
