Erase All The Borders – Best of 2016


Much as the year couldn’t be edited to make it any more palatable – in the end I couldn’t do the same with this year’s best of, clocking in for you here at three hours and twenty six minutes. But you get 51 musical landscapes to escape to and two Prince covers, so settle in. It was a good year for jazz, a terrible year for everything else.
