Here’s a well constructed energetic album by Oliver Nelson and company. Nelson again and he does in many of his album, plays both the Tenor and Flute. “Main Stem” will excite all the Jazz Con Class listeners and will put a smile on their face. I recommend to raise the volume of your speakers to get the full effect. Joe Newman is great on the trumpet and my next featured album will be one of his. Check the schedule link for play times, enjoy!

"Best streaming jazz anywhere! Jose does an amazing job building playlists, selecting the best music. I'm especially grateful that he makes Jazz Con Class Radio available so many ways with hardly any interruptions: I use the smartphone app in the car, Tune-In on our smart TV when in the living room, and Apple Music streaming when on the computer, just great music."

"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!"

"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!"
