The cover of this 1964 Cannonball album, “Fiddler on the Roof” misrepresents its superior quality. This album can be one of Cannonball Adderley’s best. As you can read in the description below, Charles Lloyd is matched up with Cannonball either with the tenor sax or the flute. Lloyd was a big part of another classic hard-to-get album, “Cannonball Adderley Live” and a played on four songs (“Work Song”, “The Song My Lady Sings” and “Unit Seven”) on another Cannonball live album, “Radio Nights.” I’m suggesting the Jazz Con Class Radio listeners get a hold of this classic recording, enjoy!

"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."

"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."
