JAZZIZ Editors’ Choice Top 10: Bruce Hornsby, Bootsy Collins, Terence Blanchard & More

Bruce Hornsby’s arrangement of Dinosaur Jr.’s “Feel The Pain” will be featured on a new album called Join The Ritual, due out September 24th on Jagjaguwar Records. The compilation pays homage to the artists and fellow independent titans like Drag City, K Records, Too Pure, Touch & Go and more who originally inspired Jagjaguwar to take a seat at the table and enter the wild, dark magic ritual of music.

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 10 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.

Our Editors’ Choice playlist for the week of August 9 features a new single from Bruce Hornsby, a live cut from keyboardist Jon Batiste, a fresh tune from bassist Bootsy collins and a novel collaboration between Blues Traveler, Rita Wilson and John Scofield. Listen now via the playlist below!
