Back in the mid-90's, British DJ/Pundit Tony Minvielle spent a brief spell in Atlanta and served as a UK correspondent for Jazz 91.9fm WCLK. He turned the city on to so many modern musical styles like drum 'n' bass, trip-hop and even classic Brazilian offerings, rare groove and so much more. I was honored when he asked me to write the liner notes for this sublime collection of great tunes.

Heart To Heart with Dr. Alduan Tartt is a live, interactive talk program on WCLK from Clark Atlanta University and Verizon Wireless that provides healthy solutions for happy, violence free relationships. The September edition of Heart To Heart is all about what happens when you fight with your spouse, your significant other, even a relative or co-worker. We're not talking actual physical fighting, but the day-to-day bickering, shade and other things we do when we're exasperated with the ones we love or have to see each day.

Legendary trombonist and conch shell virtuoso Steve Turre brings a monster lineup to Jazz at Lincoln Center to celebrate the 80th birthday of one of his influences, the late Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Christian McBride is your host Sunday at 7pm on WCLK for Jazz Night In America from NPR Music and our friends at WBGO/Newark.

New Music On WCLK From Dee Dee Bridgewater

Aug 24, 2015

Dee Dee Bridgewater's new release on Okeh is titled Dee Dee's Feathers and she has teamed up with one of my favorite New Orleans trumpeters, Irvin Mayfield & The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. The record is a wonderful combination of Dee Dee's voice on top of that awesome New Orleans sound. Listen to WCLK and you will hear a wonderful arrangement of Saint James Infirmary, Big Chief- featuring Dr. John, Come Sunday, Congo Square and the Treme song/Do Whatcha Wanna. This is another great work of art that is a must for anyone's jazz collection.
