Ludovic Navarre is St. Germain, one of modern music's great mixers of sound, creating dance and Jazz tracks that have enthralled listeners since 1995. Self titled release St. Germain is the first release since Tourist in 2000.  Jazz 91.9 WCLK has always played St. Germain as part of our mix, and we're happy to feature tracks from St. Germain, which includes a heavy dose of Sub-Saharan African stylings. Listen for it on Serenade To The City, Monday-Fridays from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 am.

Support for  Jazz 91.9 WCLK comes from the Urban League of Greater Atlanta, presenting the 54th Annual Equal Opportunity Day Dinner on Saturday, December 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Congressman Hank Johnson are among the honorees.

The holidays are a special time on 91.9 WCLK, Atlanta's Jazz Station. We play old favorites and new takes of the Christmas music beloved by Jazz heads everywhere. I'll be featuring cuts off of the new release Big Band Holidays, featuring Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra, which features guests including Rene Marie and Gregory Porter. Hear it throughout the day on Jazz 91.9 and especially with me on Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday, 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

Emmy Award-Winning Composer Laura Karpman uses Langston Hughes' epic 1961 poem Ask Your Mama as the theme on Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods For Jazz. She uses a contemporary who's who of vocalists and instrumentalists to weave different genres together in a tour de force dedicated to this protean poet, social activist, novelist and playwright.
