  1. Great list and also the first one I’ve seen that has Salt Year by Chris Bathgate at an appropriate level. Everyone should definitely listen to the whole album. Meanwhile, I am really enjoying Bryan John Appleby who is new to me. Definitely will purchase that one (at least that one). Thanks!!! Nice job.
