JAZZIZ Editors’ Choice Playlist: Holiday Edition

The editors of JAZZIZ have the good fortune of being able to listen to new music before it’s officially released in stores and streaming platforms. And because we’re listening to new tunes all day every day, we know just what to recommend when new albums are released every Friday. That’s why, each Monday, we’ll be bringing you a roundup of our favorite songs from the weekend courtesy of our Editors’ Choice playlists, which will feature our favorite new albums, singles and other tunes that may have flown under your radar. This is music recommendation the old-fashioned way: No algorithms, no computer profiles. Just jazz fans connecting with other jazz fans through the music we love.

Our Editors’ Choice playlist for the week of December 7 carries on a JAZZIZ tradition, bringing you the latest and greatest holiday music for 2020. This year’s list features covers of holiday classics by Warren Wolf, Leslie Odom Jr., Brian Bromberg and more, as well as some creative Christmastime originals by the likes of Jamie Cullum and La Lucha.
