May 18, 2016

Support for Jazz 91.9 WCLK comes from our partners at the High Museum of Art featuring Friday Jazz as part of Atlanta's 31 Days of Jazz, May 20 from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.  Come hear The Mastery Jazz Quintet. Attendees can also see the exhibition Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks, before it closes on May 29.  Friday Jazz at the High will be hosted by our own, Jamal Ahmad.  Want more info? Click here.

Jamal Ahmad is your emcee as Atlanta's High Museum of Art welcomes keyboardist Louis Herriveaux for the May edition of Friday Jazz At The High, May 16 from 5p until 10p.  Admission to Friday Jazz is free with your admission to the museum.  You can beat the traffic, take in the High's latest exhibits, including the last week of Abelardo Morell: The Universe Next Door, and dig jazz music from Louis Herriveaux.  We don't think there is a better way to spend a Friday evening.

Louis Herriveaux and High Museum's Jessica Joris stopped by WCLK to talk about it with Jamal:

Joe Gransden is the April artist for Friday Jazz At The High Museum.  Atlanta's best remedy to Friday traffic jams is to head to Atlanta's great art museum for art and jazz jams.  This Friday's event takes place from 5p-10p.   WCLK's Jamal Ahmad is your emcee, and Joe Gransden is one of Atlanta's foremost players, singers, bandleaders and arrangers.  He's also a friend of WCLK, so we can assure you this will be a great event for the WCLK family.  You can also check out the current High Museum exhibits.

Swing by Atlanta's High Museum of Art Friday March 21 from 5pm until 10pm for Friday Jazz.  You can take in all of the latest exhibits, and catch jazz vocalist Karla Harris and her combo.  It's the best way to beat Atlanta's Friday traffic jam.  The event is hosted by WCLK's Jamal Ahmad.  We hope to see you there.

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.

Jazz vocalist of note Laura Coyle and her Quintet provide the musical soundtrack to Friday Jazz At The High Museum this week.  WCLK's Jamal Ahmad will be your emcee at this event, and he sat down to chat with Coyle in advance of her performance.  Friday Jazz this week will also serve as the kickoff of WCLK's 40th Anniversary Celebration.  We hope to see you there.
