Join WCLK's Jay Edwards tonight for the Ferst Center's premiere of trumpeter and singer---Spencer Ludwig.

The twenty-something-year-old jazz artist merges the classic music genre with pop sounds for a style that simmers and swaggers with soul. Following three years as lead trumpet with indie pop act Capital Cities, the release of the song Diggy in a Target commercial catapulted his career. He recently released his solo debut album with Warner Bros. Records, showcasing both his trumpet talents and dynamic, diverse vocals.

Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Gregory Porter has released his version of the Nat King Cole classic tune “L.O.V.E.”  The song comes from Porter’s upcoming tribute album, Nat King Cole & Me, which features songs made famous by the 50’s crooner.

 

Check out Andra Day‘s soul-stirring rendition of Billie Holiday‘s classic jazz tune, “Strange Fruit.” The Grammy-nominated performer released the song and video recently as part of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) “Lynching in America.”
