JAZZIZ Editors’ Choice Top 10: Week of March 15, 2021

Vocalist Sting has a duet rendition with Herbie Hancock of the popular jazz standard “My Funny Valentine.” This is the first single from his forthcoming compilation album, Duets, out March 19 via UMG. The two first recorded the song together for the soundtrack of the 2005 Japanese movie, Ashura. Duets will also include collaborations with such artists as Melody Gardot, Eric Clapton, Mary J. Blige and more. (Photo: Courtesy the artist)

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 March 15 features new tracks from Kat Edmonson, Jon Batiste, Pat Metheny, Veronica Swift, Mindi Abair and more! Listen via the player below and follow our playlists on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and Qobuz.
