Live Albums I Played In January 2018

2017 finished with an addiction to jazz where I was delving into classic studio albums as well as live recordings. I don’t know how long it will last but Jazz is all I’m interested in at the start of January.

The first album of the year always has special meaning to me and in 2018, that honour went to Thelonious Monk Live At The IT Club.

During the month, I strayed briefly away from jazz by playing some of my favourite live albums and I enjoyed the change of each immensely but none of them made me want to contemplate switching the main focus of my interest this month.
