Hiromi Uehara, the talented young lady from Japan, takes the top spot this year on MOJA Radio!

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 2016 it was and I’m getting the feeling that 2017 is gonna be just as awesome!
