The 1955 album (Recorded in 1954),  named “The Fabulous Thad Jones” can be found, in its original form and also as “Thad Jones” and with four extra songs added to it.  The extra 4 songs were taken from this album, added to original and released, in 1956, as a compilation album and with a different album cover. “Thad Jones” was the name of this album, the image that shows on this was the new look. I recommend the Jazz Con Class Radio listeners to purchase this version, so you can get it all, in one (Available in MP3 version also). Great album, ENJOY!

About the album:

Jones’ playing on this 1954 release is distinct and exciting. His compelling tone and technique instinctively evoke the dense and brassy tone of predecessors such as Fats Navarro. On the Porter classic “Get out of Town,” Jones wastes no time. After a brief Harmon-muted introduction, he breaks into startlingly forceful phrases.

"I just downloaded this app and it's my first (certainly of many!) evenings with you. The music is great but so is the philosophy of why you created this space and the visual and functional appearance of the space.
Congratulations, I don't think I will ever become tired of visiting you!"

"A site for true jazz lovers, for TRUTH lovers, for anyone looking to
escape the garbage passed off as real music today and experience
something real. Art at its finest, and I listen in just about every
day. Thank you for your good and necessary work, Jose."

"As a college English and Fine Arts professor, I have spent many long days and nights grading and writing papers with your station as my soundtrack. I can't thank you enough for the perfect score for such work, which I've been leaning on for the last four years. I've always been obsessed with jazz, but like many fans, I'm selective and looking to avoid the obvious. Jazz Con Class hits all the right notes, and while I love to hear my favorites (Bird, Trane, Monk, Morgan, Hubbard, Blakey), the variety of deep cuts is what brings me back. Thank you for the thoughtful intent and love for this music that shines through in every playlist."
