Jazz 91.9 WCLK Atlanta's Jazz Station

New Music: Reach By Christian Sands

Apr 12, 2017
Mack Avenue Records

If progressive Jazz is your thing then you probably already know about Christian Sands. His debut record for Mack Avenue is called Reach, and features a dynamite quintet on a series of inventive, innovative pieces, mostly original but with covers of Bill Withers and classic pop gem "Somewhere Out There" done as a dreamy, timeless, Bill Evans meets Debussy way.  NPR Jazz Night In America Host Christian McBride and occasional bandmade drops in to play a bass solo on Sands' version of "Use Me." You can hear cuts from Reach on Jazz 91.9  WCLK during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

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).
