Those of you who made it to last week's Friday Jazz At The High event with Ike Stubblefield know the power of the mighty Hammond B-3 organ.  You won't want to miss JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater from NPR this weekend on WCLK.  Show will air at 6:00am Saturday and 7pm Sunday on Atlanta's Jazz Station.

This week's performance features Smith and his trio live at the Kennedy Center Jazz Club in Washington, D.C.

Join WCLK Friday at 5pm for Friday Jazz At The High Museum as we kick off our 40th Anniversary celebration.  Jamal Ahmad is your host and The Laura Coyle Quintet is the live entertainment.  Your museum admission gains admission to the Friday Jazz, as WCLK begins our year long celebration  in recognition of the day in April, 1974 we went on the air bringing Jazz to Atlanta.  So skip the Friday traffic jam and join Atlanta's Jazz Station for the celebration.

Stay outta that traffic jam and swing by Atlanta's High Museum for the latest edition of Friday Jazz At The High.  This month's event features the Steve Dancz Sextet and your emcee Jamal Ahmad.  You can stroll current exhibits in the Wieland Pavillion Galleries and get your live jazz on at the same time.

Kevin Bales on piano means solid jazz music.  He plays this evening at Atlanta's High Museum as part of the Friday Jazz At The High series, hosted by WCLK's Jamal Ahmad.  The event kicks off at 5:00pm and goes until 10pm and is your perfect excuse to sit out the traffic jam, dig some jazz, and take in the High's current and permanent art exhibits, including Witness: The Art of Jerry Pinkney.  Kevin stopped by WCLK this week to chat with Jamal about Friday Jazz at the High and what he's been working on musically.
