PowertothePeopleFundraiser

The 2022 Jazz Con Class Radio Fundraiser is here and will remain with us until the last day of the year (when it officially ends) OR unless the goal is met beforehand (anytime before 12/31/2022) This year I named it the “Power To The People” Fundraiser as an appreciation to all the listeners that have donated to past fundraisers throughout the years. If it wasn’t for their stellar support, Jazz Con Class Radio would certainly not be entering it’s 11th year stronger than ever! They are the main reason why I used the title of Joe Henderson’s 1969 “Power To The People.” as the title for the fundraiser. These Jazz Aficionado fundraiser supporters are the perfect example of what the term itself stands for and further supports the most accurate interpretation of the word “Power” in the particular phrase itself. The meaning here is “Force” and how the word “Power” is used in the phrase. Yes, it’s been this ENDLESS support of this “Force” that has kept this basically independent internet Jazz radio station alive and kicking for so long. As for me, you probably already know that I will keep pushing forward and working hard in order to keep this “Magnificent” form of musical expression alive forever. We know that without Jazz the world would be finished, there wouldn’t be anything to live for! Yes it would be that boring, there would be nobody “Cool” around to talk to. JAZZ rules and cures EVERY problem and we MUST KEEP IT ALIVE! After all is said, WE ALL know this is why Jazz Con Class Radio really exists! WE also know that disturbing the broadcast with an interrupting barrage of advertisements that only distract and diminish the unmatched quality of the best musicians that ever walked this planet! Let’s keep Jazz ALIVE and PURE! PLEASE HELP by contributing whatever you can, Learn More About the “Power To The People” Fundraiser Over Here….

"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."

"Jazz Con Class is a wonderful discovery. I never have to change it because each tune is selected so carefully. It lifts my spirits and at the same time teaches me about a side of music I otherwise wouldn't have exposure to. This is honest, real music and I'm glad to have the chance to listen to it."

"Enjoy, very much, listening to your arrangements. My wife and I have two sons (14 & 11) who think Jazz is 'Dad's elevator music'. However, while we were watching 'High Society' Bing Crosby was leading the band in 'Now you has Jazz', while slowly adding each instrument. Finally, of course, the whole number was really rolling with Louis Armstrong leading the way! My youngest son, Joseph, said 'Dad, play that once more.' My wife smiled at me and I knew this wonderful, American art form was getting through to them.
Keep going, Jose. Jazz Con Class Radio is fabulous!"
