This was Jackie McLean’s debut album and was recorded in 1955 with the help and support of Donald Byrd, Mal Waldron and Ronald Tucker.

This album”Presenting Jackie McLean” will be featured here for a few weeks and placed on the Hard Bop playlist afterwards. Check the schedule link for play times, great album, 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!"
