New Music: Treblemaker By Ragan Whiteside

Jun 26, 2017

Ragan Whiteside's Jazz flute stylings bring to mind such contemporary giants as the late Dave Valentin or Najee in his early work.   Jazz 91.9 WCLK always features her work, because it is outstanding as well she has chosen to make Atlanta her home when she's not touring.   She's been in our studio and at our events for years. Treblemaker features a who's-who of accompanists, including:   Bob Baldwin, J-Fly, Kim Waters, Marion Meadows, Tom Browne, The PR Experience and Frank McComb, among others.   You can hear cuts from Treblemaker 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.

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by The Wade Ford Summer Concert Series, continuing its Summer-long run with another talent-rich concert.  The concert features Jazz 91.9 mainstay artists: Maysa Leak and Lindsey Webster along with Flutist Althea Rene and Jazz Violinist Karen Briggs.   The annual Summer Concert Series is back at the Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre in Mableton, GA on Saturday, June 24 at 6:00 p.m.

Singer-songwriter Kandace Springs is a fresh new voice in contemporary Jazz. WCLK has played her music from the beginning, and she is a part of tonight's sold-out WCLK Benefit Concert at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. She stopped by the station this morning to talk about it all with Morris Baxter, including the influence of vocalists such as Nina Simone, Norah Jones, Eva Cassidy and Luther Vandross on her style.
