Late fall jazz playlist

I've had a busy couple of weeks (writing for print media as well as some other, less exciting stuff), hence no Listening Booth nor much of anything else posted here lately. Still, I thought I'd put up a list of (new) jazz releases I've received (promos & DLs), streamed or bought, and have been listening to since the last LB, just to keep things alive over here. Although I have a few scrambled notes and tentative grades for a couple of these, I'll leave them out for now and rather return with more on these, as well as others, later. I will say this, though: several of these are good to really good, Grass Roots is ace. Things will hopefully pick up here soon. Maybe it's time to set a schedule and update on certain days of the week. We'll see.
