Jazz Con Class is introducing the new “Contemporary Playlist” for the listeners to enjoy. This playlist does contain new music by aspiring young artists and older established ones but the sound is traditional, so adding here alongside rest would be logical. Not to mention, it is necessary and imperative for the conservation of Classic Jazz music. In the ever changing world we live and with the overuse of music genres these artist remind and in turn, educate the confused or may I say, misinformed listeners, with a good doze of history. Great music never gets old and this is living proof. Either if you are a newbie listener who questions the direction music has taken the new generation or you are a music explorers with a big appetite of curiosity towards classic Jazz, then this playlist is for you. Jazz Con Class gives you a choice to enrich your mind with Jazz music. Remember, these are very talented musicians with many strenuous hours of practice. I will dedicate Saturdays to this new playlist as a great starting point, check the schedule link for play times. This “Contemporary Playlist” will be broken up into 2, two-hour sets. As of right now, you will be listening to Jason Robinson, Gabriele Orsi, Myron Walden, Christian McBride, Gary Barth and Tatum Greenblatt. If there is anybody else who would like to be added to the “Contemporary Playlist” please contact me in the Feedback link. ENJOY!
