This Tuesday’s Jazz presentation will be dedicated to Mel Martin and all the members of his famous saxophone forum located on Facebook. I consider myself a regular contributor and can imagine “all” the Jazz Con Class Radio listeners being part of it also. There is a high concentration of musicians that belong to Mel Martin’s Jazz Saxophone Forum and they are more than helpful to offer their valuable time to make it comfortable for all the non-musician Jazz fanatics. Their professional insights not only makes it a fun experience but also very educational one for those who are eager to learn more about Jazz. The forum happens to be public, as it should be and is very, very active! All the members follow the simple set rules just like all other forums demand from its members and everyone interacts and has fun! I look at it this way, “Don’t think you know so much, don’t assume, keep it real and by no means, don’t post any Smooth Jazz.” The best part of being part of this forum is the music that is posted there, WOW! So, as a token to my appreciation, I have prepared and dedicated this week’s “Super Tuesday Jazz Presentation” to this magnificent forum and all of its members. The playlist that I have prepared here will play three times throughout the day so it can be heard in a global manner (From 3AM to 6AM, from 12PM to 3PM and from 8PM to 11PM (All Times are New York, Eastern Daylight Time) learn more here. There are many ways to hear the broadcast so there is no excuse. I want to personally thank Mel Martin for this forum and would like to add that this will not be the only time I will do this! Have fun and ENJOY!
