At Jazz 91.9 WCLK we love the holiday season because we can break out some great Jazz Christmas music.  You'll hear classics as well as new cuts on the station over the next few weeks.  A new Christmas record for 2016 is out on Infinity Jazz Records from Atlanta's own Rhythm Jets.  You can hear cuts from Rhythm Jets Christmas at various times throughout the day in particular during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

On Nov 24th, 1980, Dizzy Gillespie invited 5 jazz legends - Milt Jackson, James Moody, Hank Jones, Ray Brown, & Philly Joe Jones - to join him onstage in Montreal to play a tribute to the legendary Charlie Parker. A limited quantity bootleg LP of the concert soon appeared and then disappeared from the marketplace and the tapes lay dormant for over 30 years. The pristinely restored “Concert of the Century” is now available on as part of the Justin Time Essentials Collection.

While not the best known of the Marsalis brothers, Delfeayo Marsalis is an NEA Jazz Master who has made his name as a band leader and trombonist with technical chops and creative musical instincts. On his new release on Troubadour Jass, Make America Great Again, he assembles his Uptown Jazz Orchestra for a wide-ranging effort that sounds both modern but also makes a nod to the great New Orleans jazz traditions of the past.
