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!

"Jazz music is something incredible as the sky. It always sounds the same but you hear it differently every time as you tune in. It' s cool to hear classic jazz from old times, tunes from 40-70era always sound way better then any from 90-2000s era. No advertisements on the radio is great too, only nice, flawless jazz."

"As a college English and Fine Arts professor, I have spent many long days and nights grading and writing papers with your station as my soundtrack. I can't thank you enough for the perfect score for such work, which I've been leaning on for the last four years. I've always been obsessed with jazz, but like many fans, I'm selective and looking to avoid the obvious. Jazz Con Class hits all the right notes, and while I love to hear my favorites (Bird, Trane, Monk, Morgan, Hubbard, Blakey), the variety of deep cuts is what brings me back. Thank you for the thoughtful intent and love for this music that shines through in every playlist."
