Two Top-Ten Lists - A & B. But one is not secondary to the other; they're just different. I made the first list, then thought about it for a bit and made an entirely different list. And rather than agonize about it all, I'm just posting them both.

ELEW, Elew Plays Rosenwinkel: Cubism (Heartcore)

Johnathan Blake, Trion (Giant Step Arts)

Anna Webber, Clockwork (Pi)

Ben Eunson, Ace (Ocean Road)

Rajna Swaminathan, Of Agency and Abstraction (Biophilia)

Miles Okazaki, The Sky Below (Pi)

JD Allen, Barracoon (Savant)

Brad Mehldau, Finding Gabriel (Nonesuch)

Mareike Wiening, Metropolis Paradise (Greenleaf)

List B:

Melissa Aldana, Visions (Motéma)

Jeff Ballard, Fairgrounds (Edition)

Matt Mitchell, Phalanx Ambassadors (Pi)

Noah Preminger, Zigsaw: Music of Steve Lampert (ind.)

Earprint, Easy Listening (ind.)

Matt Brewer, Ganymede (Criss Cross)

Junius Paul, Ism (International Anthem)
