Michelle Coltrane: Awakening

Apr 25, 2018

Michelle is the only daughter of John and Alice Coltrane. She was born in Paris and experienced her formative years as a DJ in Japan, where she began to do voiceover work and then began singing. Her new release on blujazz productions is called Awakening, and features vocal interpretations of her father's songs and those of others, including Tin Man, the 1970's pop-radio hit from the group America. Musicians on the record include her brother Ravi Coltrane.

Saturday on The Local Take on WCLK I spoke with Lolita Jackson about the Camellia Rose Links presenting the documentary film MAYNARD at a fundraiser for graduates of Maynard Jackson High School. The Camellia Rose Links invites everyone to join them for the screening of MAYNARD at the Carter Center on April 28th at 11am and 2pm.  Each screening will be followed by a panel discussion features people who knew and worked with Maynard Jackson.

This week on The Local Take I was joined by Dr. William Boone a professor in Clark Atlanta University's Department of Political Science about the Tuesday's deadline to register to vote and the May Gubernatorial Primary for our state.

Support for WCLK programming comes from Georgia State University's Rialto Center, presenting Larry Harlow's Latin Legends Band with special guest Oscar Hernández. It's a closing night salsa party on Saturday, April 28 at 8pm. More information including tickets is available here.
