New Music: Dance of Time By Eliane Elias

Mar 19, 2017

Jazz 91.9 WCLK listeners enjoyed cuts from Elias' 2015 release Made In Brazil, in particular the song Driving Ambition.  Her performance at the Atlanta Jazz Festival created a memorable Brazilian music buzz in the city too.  Elias has a new record coming out this week called Dance of Time, on Concord Jazz.  

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Atlanta Jazz Festival.  New this year are 40 Days of Jazz (an expansion of the traditional 31 days), a Jazz Appreciation Month concert at Chastain Park and the February 11 benefit concert—Put on Your Red Dress, Baby: An Evening of Jazz & Romance featuring Vincent Ingala. Ingala, best known for his award-winning saxophone skills is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Jazz 91.9 WCLK tent at the 39th Atlanta Jazz Festival over Memorial Day weekend.  We saw old friends and made new ones.   Great job by the Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs,  public safety officials and volunteers;  and, some great sets of music throughout Piedmont Park.  Stay with Jazz 91.9 WCLK throughout the year to hear the artists you got to know better at the Atlanta Jazz Festival.  It's always 31 Days of Jazz at Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
