The Complete Live at the Bee Hive” and “More Live at Bee Hive, Chicago June 30, 1955,” are a must have if you are a dedicated Jazz collector. The Description below from FreshSounds Records is very complete and I really don’t need to add any more here but to get a hold of both recordings.

About both albums:

Live at the Bee Hive (from FreshSounds.com):

This 2-CD Set includes Brown’s first ever recording with Sonny Rollins and Max Roach recorded live at Chicago’s Bee Hive on November 7, 1955. The inimitable trio is joined here by pianists Billy Wallace or Chris Anderson and bassist George Morrow. The edition also includes an unofficial Quintet date at New York’s Basin Street Club from April 28, 1956; and a rare 10 minutes Bonus Track of Clifford Brown recorded at a hotel in Copenhagen on November 12, 1953 after a date with the Lionel Hampton band. “This astounding 135-minute release features the Brownie, Rollins and Roach group setting fire to the bandstand with their irrepressible hard bop sound. A must have for any jazz lover.” – Warren Misel, Jazz FM……Here’s the link

"Best streaming jazz anywhere! Jose does an amazing job building playlists, selecting the best music. I'm especially grateful that he makes Jazz Con Class Radio available so many ways with hardly any interruptions: I use the smartphone app in the car, Tune-In on our smart TV when in the living room, and Apple Music streaming when on the computer, just great music."

"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."
