Jazz CG Prospects: 2004 Releases

These are records that I don't have, but they seem like they may have some interest. All records are 2004 releases unless noted otherwise. The categories are experimental. Note that everything I actually have is listed elsewhere. These are things I don't have. Also note that while the list is long it isn't complete. One major source for this is jazzmatazz.

Francis Davis

These are records that Francis Davis has written about in the Village Voice. I'm not likely to include these in a CG, although it is possible if I have something distinctive to say.
