Jason Orr presents the Funk Jazz Kafe Arts & Music Festival 20th Anniversary Celebration Part Two on Saturday, October 25 at 9pm at the Tabernacle downtown. This festival rolls into a second decade with another night of surprise musical performances and themed interactive suites.
Funk Jazz Kafe Founder Jason Orr stopped by WCLK to talk about it with Mark Angel.
Jose James is considered by many to be the greatest contemporary jazz vocalist. He plays live in ATL tonight at The Variety Playhouse. Of course he stopped by WCLK to talk with Jamal Ahmad on the Soul of Jazz, and helped Jamal and Mark Angel during our Fiscal Year End Membership Campaign. Because that's the kind of guy he is.

The 6th Annual Bessie Smith Heritage Festival goes down this weekend in the heart of Chattanooga, and features two days of Blues, Jazz, Neo Soul and R&B. ATL's own (and friend of WCLK) Joey Sommerville will be blowing his horn there, too. Joey stopped by to talk a little with Mark Angel about this weekend's festival, just a hop, skip and jump up I-75 to celebrate the life of American Blues original Bessie Smith, a native of Chattanooga.
