The year was rich in strong and variable releases and unfortunately I still didn't listen to everything what I feel can be really interesting from new releases. For my taste, most attractive music in 2017 came from two jazz subgenres - modern composition combined with freer improvs and still developing European nu jazz

1. Vijay Iyer - Far From Over
2. Phronesis - The Behemoth
3. Craig Taborn - Daylight Ghosts
4. Wadada Leo Smith - Najwa
5. Craig Taborn / Ikue Mori - Highsmith

Quite satisfying year for the jazz i like, in no particular order:
Lars Danielson - Liberetto |||
Anouar Brahem - Blue Makams
Tingvall Trio - Cirklar
Omer Klein - Sleepwalkers
Shahin Novrasli - Emanation
Louis Sclavis - Frontieres
I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that it's extremely predictable, it's a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again ...
