Original Post:
This Saturday, May 23rd at 3P.M. Eastern New York Time the Jazz Con Class Radio listeners will be enjoying a Jazz Funk/Blues special that will last three hours in total and will end at 6PM. It will concentrate on Jazz music that from the mid 50’s, when the Hammond organ was introduced to Jazz and with the sole purpose of adding more Blues to the tunes. This special will also concentrate on the very beginning of what the music industry decided to name Jazz-Funk. This Jazz era began in the mid 60’s and lasted until the early 70’s and was more soulful. That’s as far in time that Jazz Con Class Radio will travel. Jazz Fusion was very exciting as well but this Jazz station is more traditional and will not play any Jazz that was recorded after the mid 70’s. There are two very important exceptions; one is if the recordings are from legendary older Jazz musicians and secondly, if they are young jazz musicians who record traditional Jazz music. Check the playlists and learn all the Jazz eras that broadcast here. Check the schedule link also to learn when these playlists play. Thank you for your attention and tune in!

"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."
