Here’s an exquisite album from Grant Green that will fill the Jazz Con Class Radio listener’s minds with soothing positivity. Considered one of the best Jazz album ever recorded (1965), “Idle Moments” can be used as a perfect example of the mid 60’s cool movement. Grant Green opens a brand new creative avenue for future Jazz guitarists to adventure on. Its the perfectness in timing by Green and his co-musicians Joe Henderson (tenor saxophone), Bobby Hutcherson (vibraphone), Duke Pearson (piano), Bob Cranshaw (bass), Al Harewood (drums) that allow them to pull off the perfect caper. Outstanding album and one that you will immediately purchase after hearing, it’s a no-brainer, WOW! I will feature it as usual, for a week and then drop it into the rotation.

About the album:

The Rudy Van Gelder Edition of IDLE MOMENTS includes an essay by Bob Blumenthal. Digitally remastered using 24-bit technology by Rudy Van Gelder (Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey). This is part of the Blue Note Rudy Van Gelder Editions series. It was always a part of Blue Note’s development and marketing to introduce new artists as sidemen on more well-known leaders’ projects before giving them dates of their own. The system worked pretty well, and the irony is that a release like 1963’s IDLE MOMENTS looks likes more of an all-star session in retrospect. Sure, we get to hear Grant Green stretching out. But we also get Bobby Hutcherson and Joe Henderson, who were just winning their first Downbeat polls at the time. Green himself had come through this system, appearing with organ combos and on other hard bop sessions, before graduating to his own Blue Note dates. IDLE MOMENTS may be one of his finest…..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!
