On this edition of All Songs Considered, we spin some of the year's best new jazz recordings. Bob Boilen talks with WBGO's Josh Jackson, host of Live At the Village Vanguard, a monthly concert series from the legendary New York City jazz club. The two play cuts from some of 2009's standout albums, including "I Can't Help It" (from Gretchen Parlato's In a Dream) and Ben Allison's "Kramer vs. Kramer vs. Godzilla" (from Think Free).
