Jazz 91.9 WCLK Atlanta's Jazz Station

NEW MUSIC: Personal Touch By Vincent Ingala

May 22, 2018

Saxaphonist and multi-instrumentalist, Vincent Ingala is out with his fifth record.   Personal Touch (Shanachie) features Ingala playing, performing and producing across all tracks on the record.  He's still in his twenties and is a rising star in Contemporary Jazz, with a string of top 10 Billboard hit songs.

You can hear cuts from Personal Touch at various times on Jazz 91.9 WCLK in particular during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. 

Join me for Jazz Tones on  Jazz 91.9 WCLK Sunday, May 20 from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.  I'll talk with Bradie Speller. Speller is a producer, acoustic and electronic percussionist from New York City. He has a unique style that incorporates African and Latin drumming. This has allowed him to perform with such notable musicians as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Weather Report and The Pyramids.

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by St. James Live, presenting for one night only, Keyboardist Marcus Johnson, host of Catch The Flo on Jazz 91.9 WCLK (Saturdays, 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.).   Johnson plays Pop, Rock and Jazz and you hear his music on the station, regularly.

This week on The Local Take I speak with Perry Whaley, the Vitiligo Man of Action, about his upcoming 5K race taking place on June 2 in Conyers, Georgia.  Perry Whaley explains to us that vitiligo is an auto-immune deficiency that causes a loss in melanin causing the skin to become "spotty." He also shares that the stigma associated with this condition causes many people to self-isolate. Perry has dedicated his life to this cause. On June 2, he is inviting the community to join forces to participate in a 5K.  This race is for people who have vitiligo and who support those who do. 

Pianist Benito Gonzalez has been on the Jazz radar globally since winning the 2005 Great American Jazz Piano Competition.  Over the years Benito has accompanied: Curtis Fuller, Pharaoh Sanders, Bobby Hutcherson, Christian McBride, Ignacio Berroa, Roy Hargrove, Rene McLean, Steve Turre, Hamiet Bluiett, Antonio Sanchez, T.K.
