Best of 2016 (What I listened to in the year 2016) by Tosh Berman

Without a singular doubt, the year 2016 was a disaster on many levels.  Yet, I heard great music this year.  Mostly re-issues of old music, or old music in general.  When I think of the best of whatever year, it is always what turned me on, and not necessary a new album by a new artist.  Therefore the albums down below are the one's that really inspire and gave me a great deal of enjoyment.  And in no special order:
