The Best of 2006

Here is my annual list of the best smooth jazz tracks from this year, as played on the live show December 31st 2006.

I should point out that these are my personal choices and not compiled from any sales figures, listener stats or the suchlike. And with that in mind I make no apologies if you think that anyone is overrated or underrated, missing or otherwise.
