Echoes Top 25 for December 2014

Wax_Tailor_Phonovisions_LPHere’s the last monthly Echoes Top 25 for 2015. Predictably, Wax Tailor’s Phonovisions Symphonic Orchestra is at the top since it was an Echoes December CD of the Month and it’s followed by Orenda Fink’s Blue Dream by virtue of her wonderful live performance on the show.  This album, which I liked from the start, but just keeps growing deeper and more enticing with every listen.  Interestingly, six CDs of the Month remained in the Top 25 by year’s end going all the way back to the June pick, Carl Weingarten’s beautifully detailed Life Under Stars. Thirteen of these albums were also in The Best of Echoes 2014.
