Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Jazz 91.9 WCLK tent during Memorial Day Weekend at the 41st Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival at Piedmont Park.  We did our no rain dance and it worked. Everyone enjoyed great performances at the Contemporary Stage which included : Terri Lyne Carrington and Social Science; Jazzmeia Horn; and, Cory Henry and The Funk Apostles, among others.

Last Christmas I had a fascinating conversation with Nadine McKinnor. You may not have heard of McKinnor, but you have probably heard Donny Hathaway's This Christmas, a holiday soul classic that has been covered by many including The Temptations, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle, Diana Ross, Gloria Estefan, Usher, Spyro Gyra, Cee Lo Green and many others. Hathaway co-wrote the song with Nadine McKinnor when he was recording as Donnie Pitts.
