Jazz 91.9 WCLK Atlanta's Jazz Station

Last month The Local Take reached out to Rashid Nuri, founder of Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture.  The gardens have moved from the Old Fourth Ward to the Westside one tree at a time. Nuri explains why he moved the dirt first which allowed them to save close to 100% of the trees.

Jazz 91.9 WCLK, Atlanta’s Jazz Station, presents GRAMMY Award winning Vocalist, Gregory Porter along with Singer and Pianist, Kandace Springs on Friday, June 23, 8:00 p.m. at Cobb Energy Centre in Atlanta.  In celebration of WCLK’s 43rd Anniversary, Porter and Springs will play Atlanta in a special salute to Jazz and Soul music.  The Jazz 91.9 benefit concert is an anchor for WCLK’s fundraising efforts to continue providing uninterrupted, quality programming and service to Greater Atlanta.  

This week on The Local Take I speak with Maria Saporta founder of the Saporta Report, an in depth journalistic news service with a focus on metro-Atlanta. I speak with Maria about several recent reports on the Westside including her conversations with Authur Blank (Owner Atlanta Falcons) and Dan Cathy (Owner Chick-Fil-A).

From March 29 - April 9, when you make a contribution to WCLK during the Jazz 91.9 WCLK Spring Membership Campaign, you can replace your thank you gift with meals donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB).

A new re-release on Concord Music Group/Fantasy records, On A Monday Evening, offers Jazz fans a rare treat: an unreleased concert recording of The Bill Evans Trio, featuring Eddie Gomez and Eliot Zigmund. Captured live at Union Theater in  Madison, Wisconsin on Monday, November 15, 1976, this recording finds Evans at the top of his game.  The recording features performances that includes both contemporary compositions from that era, as well as his longstanding signature tunes.   You can hear cuts from On A Monday Evening on WCLK HD 2 Mainstream and on Serenade To The City,  Monday through Friday 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.
