Published: 2014-01-04
Wayne Shorter Jazz fans spent much of the past month poring over dozens of “Best of 2013” lists, left only to wonder what the vaunted music actually sounded like. To satisfy curious listeners and highlight the excellent music, AccuJazz Internet radio has created a “Best Jazz of 2013” channel playing the most critically-acclaimed jazz albums released last year. The streaming channel is free to listen to and available 24 hours a day at AccuJazz.com.

The channel’s programming is based on Francis Davis’ NPR Music critics’ poll (formerly of the Village Voice), which asked 136 jazz critics to list their top albums of the year. Therefore, listeners will hear Wayne Shorter
