STEVE KHAN takes the #1 slot for 2017 with BACKLOG!!

Take a look at this list and if you know the music you’ll see that we think of MOdern JAzz as a groovin’ good time! Plus a number of new artists emerged to help define MOJA while the established artists are represented here as well of course. And there is a decidedly international quality to this list, reflecting the fact that MOJA is truly a world-wide art form in the 21st century. What a 2017 it was and I’m getting the feeling that 2018 is gonna be just as awesome! Here’s our MOJA Top 25 for the year! CHECK IT OUT…
