Facebook

Consequence” is basically and educational Jazz album that will take you back to 1965 and to where this country was in a transition. Many social issues were being challenged and Jazz music was adjusting to these changes also. One can clearly hear a combination of both Hard Bop and Avant-Garde, not to mention the highest quality of musicianship. Both Jackie McLean and Lee Morgan were in their prime and along with dynamic drummer Billy Higgins and company, they were simply dynamite. Music listeners use the term “Tight” to describe the ability for a band to play in perfect unison, no matter the speed they play, fast or slow. This band consisted of very unique individuals but with the least arrogance to disrupt or change each others goal. This album is perfect example of a “Tight Band.” Checkout the schedule link to find out more about the play times, ENJOY!

About the Album:

This 1965 session pairs Jackie McLean with Lee Morgan in the front line and features a rhythm section of pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Herbie Lewis, and drummer Billy Higgins. Right — a powerhouse band. Originally recorded in 1965, it wasn’t released on LP until 1979, and then on CD as part of the Mosaic box set (The Complete Blue Note 1964-1966). This is its first release as a separate title on CD. The music here is much more straight-ahead than on other McLean dates from the 1960s.

"Since I discovered this station by chance I listen most every day. The music is eclectic and covers the wide spectrum of Jazz from New Orleans style through the Avant Garde to solid fusion. I was a jazz programmer for 12 years and I have to admit that on this station I have heard recordings by band leaders such as, Charlie Mingus, Joe Zawinul, Donald Byrd, Duke Ellington, Abbey Lincoln, Charlie Hayden, Art Blakey, Billie Holiday, Chick Corea and many other pressings that I did not know existed. The station has been an education to me. i thought I knew it all, but I'm now humbled by the quality, width and depth of the programing. This is an excellent site for beginners and old fogies like me. Thank you Jose!"

"I just downloaded this app and it's my first (certainly of many!) evenings with you. The music is great but so is the philosophy of why you created this space and the visual and functional appearance of the space.
Congratulations, I don't think I will ever become tired of visiting you!"

"This is a real jazz station, and I can tell the announcer is a New Yorker. I'm a former NYC resident (born and raised) in Greenwich Village where many classic jazz clubs once existed, the Village Vanguard is still there. I hope Jazz Con Class Radio remains on the air for many years to come!"
