Check out this morning's edition of #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry.

This week's show featured "Saints & Sinners" actress Lisa Arrindell. She stopped by the studios to chat about her sinister character on the Bounce TV show and her appearance in the film adaptation of the book, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks." The original movie starring Oprah Winfrey airs this month (April 22) on HBO. 

This week on The Local Take I speak with Maria Saporta founder of the Saporta Report, an in depth journalistic news service with a focus on metro-Atlanta. I speak with Maria about several recent reports on the Westside including her conversations with Authur Blank (Owner Atlanta Falcons) and Dan Cathy (Owner Chick-Fil-A).

A new re-release on Concord Music Group/Fantasy records, On A Monday Evening, offers Jazz fans a rare treat: an unreleased concert recording of The Bill Evans Trio, featuring Eddie Gomez and Eliot Zigmund. Captured live at Union Theater in  Madison, Wisconsin on Monday, November 15, 1976, this recording finds Evans at the top of his game.  The recording features performances that includes both contemporary compositions from that era, as well as his longstanding signature tunes.   You can hear cuts from On A Monday Evening on WCLK HD 2 Mainstream and on Serenade To The City,  Monday through Friday 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

His playing skillfully fuses the rhythm of his Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of Jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner as well as his older brother, Charlie Palmieri.Palmieri was born in  Spanish Harlem and raised in the Bronx.  You can read about his honored career by visiting Palmieri Music here.
