I’m going to feature a special for Duke Ellington, the king himself. I will play this throughout, twice a day and for an unlimited time. Let’s see how it fares, I feel it will go for a long while. It will solely feature on the incredible album, Duke Ellington: The Reprise Studio Recordings. Great album, every song is great, the listeners will love it and will never get bored. Go to the schedule link and see the times, you are bound to catch one. Here’s more on the album:

When Frank Sinatra started his Reprise label in the early ’60s, one of the first artists he approached was Duke Ellington. Nearly 40 years later, as part of the 1999 celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Ellington’s birth, Warner Brothers, which had long since bought and absorbed Reprise, finally released a complete retrospective box set, THE REPRISE STUDIO RECORDINGS.

This five-disc, 101-track collection is fascinating, as Ellington’s Reprise recordings feature probably his greatest stylistic range. This tracks are all over the map, from re-recordings of old Ellington classics, to sometimes-radical rearrangements of gospel and blues standards, to the three-part “Night Monster” suite, to jams with titles like “Non-Violent Integration,” to versions of then-current pop tunes like “Let’s Go Fly a Kite.” Yet somehow, each track is unmistakably Ellington. The box set also includes a full sessionography and extensive liner notes……..Read More 

The other news is on a the NEW “General Three” Playlist which will feature Jazz tunes that have not been played on Jazz Con Class up to now. This is an early warning because it will be the rotation a few days from now. I will add it to the Playlist link soon.

After searching across the web for the best jazz station, I found Jazz Con Class Radio. Hands down, the best jazz music anywhere. Why you ask? The focus on the best jazz music ever recorded, combined with the depth of artists and tracks played. I have heard so many tracks that I have never heard before, it’s mind blowing what Jazz Con Class Radio plays that other stations don’t. Mr. Reyes, your station is a national artistic treasure!

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 !

Hi José Reyes,
I have been listening to your radio broadcasting for some time and I can assure you without a doubt that your jazz program is the best on the entire network. I hope you could keep it for a long time without advertising and maintaining the quality that characterizes you. My girlfriend and I heard you from Basque Country in Spain with great pleasure for our ears and our senses. That's why we congratulate you and thank you!
