This is my latest featured album and it is a real “Sleeper.” The name of the album is Art Farmer/Benny Golson Meet the Jazztet” and it holds up on its own with the best of them, this is why I’m featuring it. There are many albums that somehow slip through the passionate Jazz ears and are simply ignored. Perhaps it’s just bad timing or maybe bad promoting but then again, in 1960 there was so much going on with better known Jazz musicians. There was so much groundbreaking Jazz music being produced, Hard Bop was still running strong, Free Jazz was fresh and  Post Bop/ Avant-Garde was evolving. This could only be the excuse, as this stealth classic album was not seen as it traveled under the radar. I will be featuring it for a week or so and later place it in the Hard Bop playlist. Check the schedule link to see when it will be playing, enjoy!

More on Album:

Although this CD has the same program as the original LP, it gets the highest rating because it is a hard bop classic. Not only does it include superior solos from trumpeter Art Farmer, trombonist Curtis Fuller, tenor saxophonist Benny Golson, and pianist McCoy Tyner (who was making his recording debut) along with fine backup from bassist Addison Farmer and drummer Lex Humphries, but it features the writing of Golson. Highlights include the original version of “Killer Joe” along with early renditions of “I Remember Clifford” and “Blues March.”….Learn More

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!
