Top 25 Albums of 1957

Jazz dominates the Top 25 Albums of 1957, comprising 64% of the overall list. It also wasn’t the biggest year for rock and roll, which was still in its early, formative stages. Perhaps most notable is the fact that only one woman — Anita O’Day — made the cut. Nevertheless, 1957 was another landmark year in modern music history, complete with career works from legendary performers like Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins and Little Richard.
