  Squidco Customer's Top 2019 Albums  
Squidco Top 50 by Customer Orders

2019 was an outstanding year for new releases, and our customers showed their interest with their orders. I personally find this list to be the most useful reflection of the state of improvised music during the year, as our customers have exceptional and discerning taste in the improvised and compositional music that we specialize in. Squidco displays this list in a democratic, alphabetic form, but here on The Squid's Ear we're listing the albums in sales order, with the first being the most popular album in our catalog during the year.

And what an album! Topographie Parisienne with Derek Bailey, Han Bennink and Evan Parker, reprising material in the vein of Parker's Topography of the Lungs album in a single concert from 1981 was a gift from Fou Records' Jean-Marc Foussat, who recorded it, and is recommended to anyone interested in European and London Free Jazz from three of the real masters, a sort of culmination of their work through the 60s and 70s. The next three albums are also notable as they all hail from the newly re-formed ezz-thetics by Hat Hut Records Ltd, once again under the inspired leadership of Werner X. Uehlinger. The Jimmy Giuffre 3 and Marion Brown albums were released early in the year, and given a few more months would certainly have been eclipsed by the first of two of the John Coltrane Impressions Graz 1962 volumes, which rapidly climbed to 4th place despite its late-year release, passing by the other ezz-thetics release of note, Albert Ayler Quartets: Spirits To Ghosts Revisited. Philip Thomas' superb take on composer Morton Feldman's piano work in Another Timbre's 5-CD box follows, a set so popular that it has already been re-pressed, rare for a box with such demanding production values.

I'll let the rest of the year speak for itself, noting only that labels with high standards and exceptional musicians deserve their listing here. In alphabetic order, those are: Aerophonic, Another Timbre, Clean Feed, Confront, Corbett vs. Dempsey, ezz-thetics by Hat Hut Records Ltd, Firehouse 12 Records, FMR, Fou Records, Glacial Erratic, Hatology, Illusions/Mirage, Libra, Magaibutsu, NoBusiness, Not Two, Otoroku, Relative Pitch, RogueArt, Trost Records, Umlaut Records, and Young Americans.

If you're unfamiliar with any of these albums or labels, I highly recommend checking them out our astute and sophisticated customers recommend them!
