New Music: Treblemaker By Ragan Whiteside

Jun 26, 2017

Ragan Whiteside's Jazz flute stylings bring to mind such contemporary giants as the late Dave Valentin or Najee in his early work.   Jazz 91.9 WCLK always features her work, because it is outstanding as well she has chosen to make Atlanta her home when she's not touring.   She's been in our studio and at our events for years. Treblemaker features a who's-who of accompanists, including:   Bob Baldwin, J-Fly, Kim Waters, Marion Meadows, Tom Browne, The PR Experience and Frank McComb, among others.   You can hear cuts from Treblemaker at various times on Jazz 91.9 WCLK in particular during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

Dr. Judi The People's Advocate returns Saturday, June 24 at 7:30 a.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK with a compelling conversation about ways that young girls can develop poise and ethics. Her guest is Linda Pearl Fils-Aime, a fashion model who began her professional career walking the runways for Ebony Fashion Fair touring the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.

Singer-songwriter Kandace Springs is a fresh new voice in contemporary Jazz. WCLK has played her music from the beginning, and she is a part of tonight's sold-out WCLK Benefit Concert at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. She stopped by the station this morning to talk about it all with Morris Baxter, including the influence of vocalists such as Nina Simone, Norah Jones, Eva Cassidy and Luther Vandross on her style.
