New Music: In My Room By Jacob Collier (VIDEO)

Sep 15, 2016

London's Jacob Collier is a 22-year-old multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and composer who's video mash-ups of classic soul songs became viral videos.  This digital sharing led to collaborations with Quincy Jones on live and recorded projects.  Jazz 91.9 WCLK listeners may best know Jacob from his work with Snarky Puppy.  In My Room is his debut on Membran Entertainment Group.  At his best he reminds me of Sly Stone, an artist who blends styles to create an entirely new sound.

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by Morehouse School of Medicine, presenting their annual Community Engagement Day on Saturday, September 17 from 9:00 a.m until 3:00 p.m.  This event will feature health screenings, workshops, food and entertainment.  It's an event for the entire family and it's all about promoting healthy communities.  All events take place at Morehouse School of Medicine, 720 Westview Drive in Atlanta.

New Music: Apache By Aaron Neville

Sep 5, 2016
Tell It Records

Aaron Neville shows no sign of losing his vocal or musical edge at age 75.  His new Tell It Records release Apache comes following several releases in recent years paying homage to formative music from his past, including records taking in Soul, Gospel and, early R&B and Doo-Wop Classics.  Apache stakes out a more contemporary sound and features Neville's original songs about love, life, longing and being nice to your mom. Its tenor and tone evokes some of his great mid-period work with The Neville Brothers.
