Wanda Fischer’s Favorite CDs of 2018

From Wanda: The following CDs are among my favorites released during 2018. This is not a “best-of” list”; rather, it reflects the CDs that struck me throughout the year as I was previewing music (most often while I was driving in my car), prompting me to make a note of the disc.
