I ran into this album just the other day while searching for more Nat Adderley, the mostly unmentioned younger brother of the great Cannonball and an excellent Cornetist. Surprisingly he is featured on the trumpet in this album and is joined by an all-star supporting cast. They are Joe Henderson, Herbie Hancock, J.J. Johnson and many more. The name of the album Jazz Con Class will be featuring is Sayin’ Somethin’ and consists of 8 songs.

More on album:

Cornetist Nat Adderley was at the peak of his powers in the mid-1960’s. This Atlantic issue has four quintet numbers with tenor-saxophonist Joe Henderson (three also feature pianist Herbie Hancock) plus four tunes in which Nat is part of an 11-piece group. He plays quite well on such songs as “Cantaloupe Island,” “Hippodelphia,” “Gospellete” and even the then-current pop tune “Call Me,” making this set one to search for. ~ Scott Yanow…..Read More

This an interesting statement from Nat Adderley that I found while searching for more information on this album. It also points out the songs each musician participated in:

I have always believed that, no matter what the reason, the music always speaks for itself. I consciously went into this recording with an idea in mind that I wanted to show that music is music. That there is not such a big gap between blues and avant-garde. That the gap is in the labeling of the music rather than the music itself. All music is to be listened to and enjoyed, if possible, and no one should limit himself to just one type of music. If the musician is not limited, the listener should not be limited either. Open-mindedness is the answer. – Nat Adderley……. Learn More

Look forward to listening to the album feature for a couple of weeks, check the Schedule link for play time. 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!"

"Best streaming jazz anywhere! Jose does an amazing job building playlists, selecting the best music. I'm especially grateful that he makes Jazz Con Class Radio available so many ways with hardly any interruptions: I use the smartphone app in the car, Tune-In on our smart TV when in the living room, and Apple Music streaming when on the computer, just great music."
