35) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Charles Lloyd-'Trios: Chapel'
I've never had a jazz album be the album I listened to the most in a year, and being honest, the albums I listened to the most in 2022 were albums released in 2020, 2021, or about to be released in 2023. So this is technically the album released in 2022 that I listened to the most. That said, it is an amazing document of a show I wanted to record myself. I was happy to see it was recorded and documented. It was recorded right here in San Antonio back in December of 2018. When I found out it was being released, I was so excited to hear the show again. A drummer-less trio featuring amazing Bill Frisell on guitar and Thomas Morgan on bass, and lead up by the master reedist Charles Lloyd. All recorded on a cool December night inside a cozy chapel. It's nice to have such a great recording of a show I witnessed with my father, and so many other lucky people in San Antonio. It is quite exciting to relive the experience. - Michael - MFL
