Jazz Magazine/Jazzman Les Chocs 2013 and Les Inrocks World Jazz Chanson 2013

Merry Christmas in jazz. Jazz Magazine/Jazzman is a French monthly publication, result of 2009 merger between the two magazines. "Les Chocs 2013" is not an actual chart, but a selection of the jazz albums that has been a "choc" for the mag critics in 2013: one choc each journalist. It's a rather varied selection and - even if just half albums are available on Spotify - I think it may be a soundtrack fit for a happy and quiet festivity. As a bonus, always coming from France, more world-spiced, the selection of Les Inrockuptibles best world/jazz/chanson albums of 2013 (if you're interested in jazz, you can also check the Jazzwise Top 20 New Releases of 2013).

Enjoy and Merry Christmas.
