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. The CD also has the addition of six extra tracks, including four unheard Ellington originals: “Very Special,” “Rem Blues,” “Switch Blade,” and “Backward Country Boy Blues.” He is as at home in the setting of a trio as he is with a wailing big-band, and as usual, he allows the other musicians to play. The trio version of “Caravan” is exceptional, raucous and swinging…Learn More

"Jazz Con Class Radio plays the finest in jazz 24 hours a day. Here you can listen to the best in jazz, all the giants from Duke Elliington and Charlie Parker to Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock as well as the infinite number of notable contributors in between. Jazz Con Class Radio plays the whole spectrum of jazz. Jazz that's melodic, but never boring as well as edgy, but not too far out. Jazz Con Class Radio presents all the best this great American music form has to offer. Online. 24 hours a day. You'll find it all on Jazz Con Class Radio."

"I appreciate Jazz Con Class Radio because I love bop, hard bop, and related jazz forms. I especially appreciate Jazz Con Class because of the great range of musicians and cuts that are played. Although I like to hear Miles Davis play So What and John Coltrane play My Favorite Things, familiar cuts like these are heard too often on other jazz stations. Unlike other jazz stations, Jazz Con Class Radio frequently surprises me with great music that is not so familiar to me. I love it. And I also love the absence of commercial interruptions.

Although I am not a musician or an authority on music, I teach a Bop seminar for first-year students at the University of California at Davis. In addition to hearing the music, the students learn about the musicians and urban culture in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. I often play Jazz Con Class Radio at the start and end of class meetings. The music is a wonderful gift. The station is also a wonderful gift."
