Talk about “Tenor Madness” this is a perfect example! This is a great album that falls into the Avant-Garde era and features two greats, Dexter Gordon and Booker Ervin jamming together.

They have their own distinctive sounds so you definitely know who’s playing and when. I will be featuring this album, “Setting the Pace” for a couple of weeks or so and then place the tracks on the Avant-garde Playlist. Check the Schedule Link to learn when I will be airing it. Enjoy!

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!
