June was a busy month – I was away for a friend’s birthday, also the podcast turned one. I watched (and reviewed) a lot of DVDs and read quite a few books, the Jazz Festival rolled in (and then out) of town. And I thought I didn’t review many albums – but they piled up, as they tend to do. A baker’s dozen of very good albums emerged. Thirteen records I (now) wouldn’t be without – and so you might want to check them out too. You may have missed them when they first appeared during the month that’s what the digest is for.
You’ll find reissues, compilations, EPs and live albums – as well as full-length studio releases. Most of the material here was released in 2015/16 but in some cases it was released in 2014 and only made it to me this year – or I only (finally) got to it this year.
