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.

About the album:

With THE SOOTHSAYER, Wayne Shorter fronts a large ensemble for the first time in his solo endeavors. 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

"Jazz Con Class Radio plays the finest in jazz 24 hours a day. Here you can listen to the best in jazz, all the giants from Duke Elliington and Charlie Parker to Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock as well as the infinite number of notable contributors in between. Jazz Con Class Radio plays the whole spectrum of jazz. Jazz that's melodic, but never boring as well as edgy, but not too far out. Jazz Con Class Radio presents all the best this great American music form has to offer. Online. 24 hours a day. You'll find it all on Jazz Con Class Radio."

"I appreciate Jazz Con Class Radio because I love bop, hard bop, and related jazz forms. I especially appreciate Jazz Con Class because of the great range of musicians and cuts that are played. Although I like to hear Miles Davis play So What and John Coltrane play My Favorite Things, familiar cuts like these are heard too often on other jazz stations. Unlike other jazz stations, Jazz Con Class Radio frequently surprises me with great music that is not so familiar to me. I love it. And I also love the absence of commercial interruptions.

Although I am not a musician or an authority on music, I teach a Bop seminar for first-year students at the University of California at Davis. In addition to hearing the music, the students learn about the musicians and urban culture in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. I often play Jazz Con Class Radio at the start and end of class meetings. The music is a wonderful gift. The station is also a wonderful gift."
