Fine guide to 2006 jazz

I'm assuming music lovers like jazz as well as classical, so let's sneak in a jazz post. Jim Wilke, host of the NPR show "Jazz After Hours," has posted his "best of" list for 2006 jazz CDs. The guy has excellent ears, and I look at his list every year.

"Jazz After Hours" is heard late night Friday and Saturday on many NPR stations -- ideal late night listening for romantic couples, although Wilke seems to miss this marketing angle. I was able to keep listening to the show after I moved from Lawton, Oklahoma (KCCU) to the Cleveland, Ohio, area in 2003 (WCPN). The web site posts a list of stations at the web site.
