Just added this album and will be featuring it twice a day for the weekend. I will play all the tracks accept the bonus alternate takes. This is an extraordinary Album and could be the most talented trio ever assembled in a recording studio. Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Max Roach! Unbelievable improvising throughout but with total control of format. It’s incredible how they compromise each other in a such a confusing environment. I ran into this album while searching through all of Duke Ellington’s works. I found other great combinations of super stars also and will be featuring them in the near future. Here’s more on the album:

Although this excellent album is listed as a Duke Ellington, equal billing should be given to the participation of Charles Mingus and Max Roach. The remastered CD is outstanding, having been cleaned up from the original master tape.

"This is exactly the kind of radio station I've ever wished for, since I learned to love jazz music. Please keep going like this for as long as possible!"

"Enjoy, very much, listening to your arrangements. My wife and I have two sons (14 & 11) who think Jazz is 'Dad's elevator music'. However, while we were watching 'High Society' Bing Crosby was leading the band in 'Now you has Jazz', while slowly adding each instrument. Finally, of course, the whole number was really rolling with Louis Armstrong leading the way! My youngest son, Joseph, said 'Dad, play that once more.' My wife smiled at me and I knew this wonderful, American art form was getting through to them.
Keep going, Jose. Jazz Con Class Radio is fabulous!"
