Its been for some time that a Wayne Shorter album was featured on Jazz Con Class, so I picked a real classic, “The Soothsayer.” Well, anything of Wayne Shorter is basically a masterpiece but this one in particular is considered to be one of the very first Avant-Garde albums recorded, 1965. Wayne Shorter is surrounded by musicians that had their own impact on the Avant-Garde era in the coming years and had already left an impression at a young ripe age during the Hard Bop era. I’m talking about Wayne Shorter (Tenor), Freddie Hubbard (Trumpet), McCoy Tyner (Piano), Ron Carter (Bass) and Tony Williams(Drums). I can go on adding more about this album but I’ll let it do the talking for me. There aren’t really any words to totally describe how good this album is. Soothsayer will be featured for a week or so, check the schedule link for play times.

Like his previous sessions, Shorter’s assorted guests are drawn from the most notable groups of the time. McCoy Tyner from Coltrane’s quartet, rhythm-mates Ron Carter and Tony Williams from Shorter’s employer Miles Davis, and Freddie Hubbard who shared horn duties with the saxophonist in Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers are all present, producing a huge sound lead by Shorter’s artistic vision. Also on board is alto saxophonist James Spaulding who is the perfect compliment to Shorter’s eclectic tenor. SOOTHSAYER is the fourth Blue Note…..Read More

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!

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!
