There are great recording surfacing as late as now and this is definitely one of them. It’s a LIVE 1966 performance from Blue Mitchell with Sonny Red and became available early in February of this year. This album, “Blue Mitchell & Sonny Red Baltimore 1966 (Uptown Records)” took place in Baltimore on March 20th and was part of the Left Bank Jazz Society, an infamous organization that hosted a great number of Jazz greats from 1966 to 1984 and eventually closed its doors in the 90’s, here’s more. To learn more of this specific concert and Left Bank Jazz Society read this very detailed post by Marc Myers. Blue Mitchell has a tremendous resume, from being part of great historical Jazz recording to leader of great ensembles, check his discography. Sonny Red’s was a legend himself, learn more here. I have been trying to find a list of all the “performances” they sponsored but all I have found as of right now is from 8/16/64 to 5/7/67. There were a total of 350 concerts and most of them recorded but not enough of them remastered and released. If I find out more about this mysterious Jazz Society I will add it here and vice versa, if you find out more, please add it on the comment section.

After searching across the web for the best jazz station, I found Jazz Con Class Radio. Hands down, the best jazz music anywhere. Why you ask? The focus on the best jazz music ever recorded, combined with the depth of artists and tracks played. I have heard so many tracks that I have never heard before, it’s mind blowing what Jazz Con Class Radio plays that other stations don’t. Mr. Reyes, your station is a national artistic treasure!

This is exactly the kind of radio station I've ever wished for, since I learned to love jazz music. Please keep going like this for as long as possible !

Hi José Reyes,
I have been listening to your radio broadcasting for some time and I can assure you without a doubt that your jazz program is the best on the entire network. I hope you could keep it for a long time without advertising and maintaining the quality that characterizes you. My girlfriend and I heard you from Basque Country in Spain with great pleasure for our ears and our senses. That's why we congratulate you and thank you!
