Record Collector have announced their 'Best of 2009'. In the issue (which is available from the 17th December) the magazine lists their choice of outstanding records released throughout the year. Claire Martin's new album, 'A Modern Art', was included, as was the Gareth Williams Power Trio's debut, 'Shock!'. Both recordings give an example of the exciting and innovative jazz around just now. A perfect listen to brighten up a cold gloomy night!
