Global Rhythm's Writers Submit Their Top Tens of 2006
Published January 3, 2007

After carefully assembling our Top Ten CDs of 2006 (published in our January issue, now on newsstands), we decided to find out what our contributing writers thought were the best records of the year. Below are the lists we received, along with Cinema columnist Phil Nugent’s Top Ten movies of the year. Most people wouldn’t call Ornette Coleman, Tony Bennett or Bob Dylan world music, but they showed up on a lot of lists…
