Sheila E. has been very prominent in the world of media after the passing of her dear friend, Prince Rogers Nelson.  She took it to the stage and gave the world an awe-inspiring tribute to him on the 2016 BET Awards, showing us all that she's more relevant than ever.   I was so honored to be able to speak to her on The S.O.U.L. Of Jazz proceeding her appearance at the Atlanta Funk Festival.   She spoke of her upbringing in Oakland, California, growing up in an immensely talented musical family and the influence from her mentor, Prince.

Support  for Jazz 91.9 WCLK programming comes from the High Museum of Art, featuring Friday Jazz, July 15 from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m., featuring Trumpeter and Vocalist, Joe Gransden.   Attendees will also be able to check out the High Museum exhibitions on view: The Rise of Sneaker Culture and Walker Evans: Depth of Field.   Friday Jazz At The High will be hosted by WCLK's Jamal Ahmad.  If you would like to join us, click here for ticket information.

We here at Jazz 91.9 WCLK are still reeling from the passing of the legendary Prince. His contributions to modern music are so widespread, they surpass category and genre.  His 58th birthday will be coming up this Tuesday, June 7 and I'm going to be celebrating like it's 1999 on the Sounds Of Universal Love, Saturday, June 4, from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. EDT.  I'll be playing music from his vast discography as well as out-takes and, unreleased and live material that never saw the light of day. Join me and let's celebrate The Royal One in style.
