Although there is so much emphasis on Kenny Dorham and Sonny Rollins, this album focuses on the whole band. It is actually a very educational album with FIVE “Jazz Legends” playing their instruments and teaching the listeners all about Jazz Contrasts. Its a very delicate album but with a quiet punch! And as I mentioned, when you have Sonny Rollins, Oscar Pettiford, Hank Jones and Max Roach backing the great Kenny Dorham, you know very well that there will be the need to make room for some sweet solos. This 1957 album is considered to be one of the greats and will be featured here for a week or so. Only the best for the Jazz Con Class Radio listeners! Check the schedule link for play times, 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!

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!
