Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre

Legendary Vocalist, Patti Austin called in to the SOUL of Jazz and I have to say, it was one of the most refreshing interviews I've done in my 21 years in radio.  She was so humble, funny and graceful.   Atlanta, you got to see her live on 11/17 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre along with Spyro Gyra at the Jazz 91.9 WCLK Benefit Concert. It's like seeing one of your favorite stand-up comedians, who also just so happens to sing. Think Eddie Murphy in reverse.

Spyro Gyra's Morning Dance is a smooth jazz classic, listening to it will re-kindle the memory of good times. The song and album of the same name is Spyro Gyra's biggest hit over a 40 year plus career for this Buffalo, New York fusion band. Spyro Gyra has released 30 albums of material over that time, and they will be digging deep into their catalog for their performance at the WCLK Fall Benefit Concert with Patti Austin at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre on Thursday, November 17 at 8pm.

Incognito featuring Maysa, along with Deborah Bond, stopped by Morning Jazz today to talk about their performance tonight at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. We also touched on the music business, the creative process, and Bluey's tips for getting work done in the studio. Tickets are still available for tonight's performance.
