WNUR Jazz Show’s Best of 2008

Heard weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., the Jazz Show block on Chicago’s WNUR 89.3 FM is one of the most respected in all of radio.  

As is their tradition, the programmers have voted on their Top 40 recordings of 2008, and released the results to coincide with their annual Phoneathon

We’re pleased to report that Nicole Mitchell’s Xenogenesis Suite: A Tribute to Octavia Butler (Firehouse 12 Records) topped the list.

The following client releases were also included:

#08: Mary Halvorson Trio, Dragon’s Head (Firehouse 12 Records)
#10: William Parker Quartet, Petit Oiseau (AUM Fidelity)
#14: William Parker, Double Sunrise Over Neptune (AUM Fidelity)
#27: The Roy Campbell Ensemble, Akhenaten Suite (AUM Fidelity)
#30: Bill Dixon, 17 Musicians In Search of a Sound: Darfur (AUM Fidelity) 

Congratulations to all the artists and labels recognized in this poll.
