The final list : a balancing act between various subgenres and innovative ways to take music and listening a step further, by coincidence - or not? - also offers a great spectrum of nationalities and instruments, genders and ages. This is of course a selection, and by definition an arbitrary one, based on inputs from specialists who only listened to a tiny fraction of what is available. That being said, there is at least some consensus that these are all albums worth listening to. The vote is on!

  1. RED Trio + Nate Wooley - Stem 
  2. Eivind Opsvik - Overseas IV
  3. Tim Berne - Snake Oil 
  4. Levity - Afternoon Delights  
  5. Katherine Young's Pretty Monsters
  6. Mikolaj Trzaska's Ircha - Zikaron Lefanaj 
  7. Thomas Heberer's Clarino - Cookbook 
  8. Eve Risser - En Corps 
  9. Pão - Pão 
  10. MMM Quartet - Live at the Metz’ Arsenal  
  11. Stian Westerhus - The Matriarch And The Wrong Kind Of Flowers 
  12. Evan Parker, Okkyung Lee, Peter Evans – The Bleeding Edge
  13. Bobun - Suite Pour Machines À Mèche
  14. Angharad Davies, Tisha Mukarji, Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga – Outwash 
  15. Evan Parker's Electro-Acoustic Ensemble: Hasselt

You can vote between now and December 31, 2012 at midnight, when the winner will be known. Cast your votes, mobilise your fans, persuade the cynics, convince the indifferent, wake up the musical sleepers .... and have fun!
