A thread for your choices for the best of 2011...I will start us off with some of my choices:

Gergo Borlai:                   M.M.M.
Captain Kirk:                   Starship Cadillac

Both of these are 2010 actually.


Here are some of my picks:
Mike Prigodich - A Stitch in Time
Fragile - Unconscious Behavior
Hiromi - Voice
Wendell Holmes Jr. - Above it All
Art Schloemer - Transfusion
Gianfranco Continenza - Face the Truth(not actually out yet due to label snafu. I've had it for 6 months though)
Trilok Gurtu and Simon Phillips - 21 Spices
Impact Fuze - Moscow
Antoine Fafard - Solus Operandi
Trix - Impact
Steve Weingart - Dialogue

Tom Kennedy - Just for the Record


I thought this one had its moments, but not one of my best releases for 2011.

Mine either. Just adding titles to the master list. First half of it is pretty strong, but it fades on the back side.

I would add

Danny John Trio - Mr Twister
Daisuke Kunita - Fuzzy Logic

They are definitely better than a lot of the other nominations (in my opinion of course).

Daisuke Kunita - Fuzzy Logic is a fantastic CD - from 2007 though.
