Jazz In The Classroom

From Jamal Ahmad, who hosted this edition of WCLK's ongoing Jazz Education series. "...Had a wonderful time hosting the Jazz Roots educational series this morning at North Atlanta High School w/ legendary South African singer/guitarist, Jonathan Butler! It was so inspiring to see him jam with a quartet that was comprised of students! They jammed Charlie Parker's "Now is the time" and Stanley Turrentine's "Sugar" and even played a traditional South African tune with him! Don't count the kids out good people! There is still hope!"
