New Music: Rebirth By Billy Childs

Apr 18, 2017
Mack Avenue Records

Billy Childs is a prolific pianist, composer and arranger of Jazz in its many variations going back to 1982 (on record).  He has worked with an amazing list of musicians, going back to J. J. Johnson and Freddie Hubbard. On his new release on Mack Avenue Records, Rebirth, Childs strips things down and plays most cuts on the record as part of a quartet, explicitly acknowledging his bebop roots. You can hear cuts from Rebirth on Jazz 91.9 WCLK on Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

Wayne Early is an economist and realtor who is a member of the South Dekalb Improvement Association.  He spoke with us about Home Valuation and Appraisal Discrimination. 

We discussed lagging home prices in African American neighborhoods and the challenges that home owners face when selling their homes. He spoke about the Realtor rules and regulations that have begun to evolve but once considered it unethical to show African Americans homes in majority White neighborhood. 

Thanks to everyone who supported WCLK during our Spring 2017 Membership Matters Campaign. It was a huge success and we are beaming with pride as we welcome new members to the family of supporters who keep alive great Jazz, Gospel and Information programming on 91.9. Today, April 10, is our 43rd Anniversary on the air, making a difference in the Atlanta community. And because of your support during the campaign, we will be able to provide over 15,000 meals for families in need through our campaign partners at The Atlanta Community Food Bank.

New Music: Reach By Christian Sands

Apr 12, 2017
Mack Avenue Records

If progressive Jazz is your thing then you probably already know about Christian Sands. His debut record for Mack Avenue is called Reach, and features a dynamite quintet on a series of inventive, innovative pieces, mostly original but with covers of Bill Withers and classic pop gem "Somewhere Out There" done as a dreamy, timeless, Bill Evans meets Debussy way.  NPR Jazz Night In America Host Christian McBride and occasional bandmade drops in to play a bass solo on Sands' version of "Use Me." You can hear cuts from Reach on Jazz 91.9  WCLK during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.
