Join me for Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, Sunday, August 13  from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Recently, Atlantan Sweet Lu Olutosin was a guest on Jazz Tones.  We discussed his third release as a leader, Meet Me At The Crossroads, a record that exhibits social consciousness with tracks such as Skin Game(Granny Said It) and How They Do That. He shared  that his grandmother taught him  that racism was an unnecessary game. A Joe Henderson tune, Don't Forget To Remember(Recorda Me),exhibits his lyrical versatility and homage to a respected legend.
