This extraordinary album “Extensions” was recorded in 1970 and released in 1972. It features a continuous stimulating theme, where if one were to connect all four songs together, the outcome would have no holes at all. McCoy Tyner’s continuous piano throughout the whole album is nothing more than genius and only explains how talented he is. Of course, he composed every single song and has composed so many significant others. Gary Bartz and Wayne Shorter are students of Coltrane and it shows in this epic avant Garde album. Simply beautiful, enjoy!

About the album:

This CD has an interesting combination of players. It may be the only recording to include both pianist McCoy Tyner and his successor with the John Coltrane Quartet, Alice Coltrane (who adds atmosphere with her harp). This set also matches the young altoist Gary Bartz with Wayne Shorter (doubling on tenor and soprano), who he succeeded in Miles Davis’ group, and has reunions between Shorter and bassist Ron Carter and between Tyner and drummer Elvin Jones.

"Jazz music is something incredible as the sky. It always sounds the same but you hear it differently every time as you tune in. It' s cool to hear classic jazz from old times, tunes from 40-70era always sound way better then any from 90-2000s era. No advertisements on the radio is great too, only nice, flawless jazz."

"This is a real jazz station, and I can tell the announcer is a New Yorker. I'm a former NYC resident (born and raised) in Greenwich Village where many classic jazz clubs once existed, the Village Vanguard is still there. I hope Jazz Con Class Radio remains on the air for many years to come!"

"Jazz Con Class is a wonderful discovery. I never have to change it because each tune is selected so carefully. It lifts my spirits and at the same time teaches me about a side of music I otherwise wouldn't have exposure to. This is honest, real music and I'm glad to have the chance to listen to it."
