At the end of the year, I celebrate the past 12 months in music and playing some of the best tunes from 2015. Most of the songs were released within this year. I selected too some really great Live Performances and Unplugged Sessions. These are the musical dots of 2015 with, among other things, P.I.L., Sleaford Mods, Frank Sinatra, Motörhead (with an unusual Acoustic-Song), Blur, Courtney Barnett, Leon Bridges and many more.
It was a good year in music with lots of new amazing singer and groups. I added on the list a song from Frank Sinatra and a blues song from Motörhead. Sinatra celebrated his 100th Birthday and the Frontman from Motörhead, Lemmy Kilmister, died suddenly yesterday.
This is not a chart list but if you really looking to buy just one Jazz-and Hip-Hop-Album, then I highly recommend the debut album from Kamasi Washington “Epic”. It is an inspiring and amazing album, 3 CD´s full of spiritual Jazz and what a fantastic debut. Kendrick Lamar´s Album “To Pimp A Butterfly” defining Hip Hop, Rap completely new. He mixed Jazz Elements with modern music and philosophical lyrics. One may say that he is the new Philosopher in Hip-Hop. But to come to an end, have fun with the 2015 mix and I hope that you will explore new sounds and artists too.
Let me still take the chance to thank you all for the past 12 months, for taking the time for reading and listening, sharing and commenting and for all likes. Take care and all the best.
Happy New Year wishes to you all!
