Sunday, September 10 from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK,  I will be joined by Jazz Vocalist Carmen Bradford.  Bradford was born  in Texas and raised in Altadena, Californa.  She grew up with music in her home and in her heart. It was only natural that she would follow in the footsteps of her great family legacy, being the daughter of legendary Drummer-Composer Bobby Bradford and world renowned Vocalist-Composer Melba Joyce. Carmen was discovered and hired by William Count Basie and was the featured vocalist in the legendary Count Basie Orchestra for nine years.

Charles Lloyd is one of Modern Jazz's great surviving sax legends, along with Sonny Rollins, Pharoah Sanders and Wayne Shorter. Lloyd's New Quartet includes Jason Moran on keys, Rueben Rogers on bass, and Eric Harland on drums. Lloyds recent release on Blue Note, Passin' Thru, features six original Lloyd compositions going back to 1963. Fans of Straight Ahead Jazz on WCLK can hear cuts from Passin' Thru Monday-Friday overnights 10pm-2am on Serenade To The City, and also on Jazz Tones with Jay Edwards, Sunday afternoons 3pm-7pm.

Tavis Smiley provides coverage of issues and people ingnored by mainstream media sources, while also covering arts and culture. WCLK is proud to be the Atlanta home for the Tavis Smiley Show from Public Radio International and WGBH. Join Tavis Saturday morning at 8am. This week Tavis catches up with cognitive scientist Professor George Lakoff, analyzing the science behind the success of President Trump’s communication style.

In the world of modern dance music, you would be hard pressed to find someone more influential than Chicago's own, legendary DJ/producer/vocalist, Lil Louis. The forefather of house/dance music has been leaving his indelible mark on pop culture since the late 80's and it's evident in the music of Daft Punk, Drake, David Guetta and so many others. He's ready to release his most ambitious project to date, a six album set that ranges from orchestral, cinematic pieces to classic Chicago jack tracks.

New Music: Herb Alpert Music Volume 1

Aug 27, 2017

Herb Alpert has new music out on his own label, the third in a series of self produced records in recent years on which he plays and occasionally sings his favorite pieces from the Great American Songbook. Alpert played most of these sessions at his own studio with Producer and Keyboardist Jochem van der Saag and a basic Jazz acoustic trio that includes Brian Bromberg on bass on some cuts.  On Music Volume 1 there is no mistaking the timbre and tone of Alpert's horn, even as he celebrates his 83rd year. You can hear cuts from Music Volume 1 at various times during the day 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.
