Jazmin Ghent is an up and coming Contemporary Jazz saxophonist, and she's gone full Christmas with this rendition of All I Want For Christmas Is You, which also includes Paul Brown on guitar. You can hear this as part of the holiday music mix on WCLK. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to everyone from all of us at your favorite Jazz station!

It really is "the most wonderful time of the year," the hustle and bustle of trying to get everything done before the "big"  day, juggling end of the year work deadlines, assuring yourself that the house is really clean "enough" and oh yes, let us not forget the everyday bills that still must be on time!  However, with all of the "wonderfulness" of this time of the year - it  still can be bittersweet and downright stressful for so many.  The loss of a loved one, anxiety about the future, finances and the moral combat we are all witnessing domestically and globally seems to be magnified duri

The Local Take Talks Transportation for DeKalb County

Dec 19, 2017

I recently spoke with Curtis Parker about his editorial in Crossroads News regarding the expansion of MARTA into South DeKalb. 

MARTA has a plan to expand east along the I-20 corridor. This plan was made almost 20 years ago and while it was great at that time, times change.  

Mr. Parker's editorial spoke about using light rail as opposed to hard rail lines. He mentions that most metropolis are relying on light rail.  He provides examples of light rail from the Plane train at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to the downtown street car. 

West Coast Percussionist Darryl Munyungo Jackson has an excellent holiday single out on his own label, bringing an instrumental and vocal take on Frank Loesser's 1944 classic Baby It's Cold Outside. The instrumental track features Eric Marienthal on soprano saxophone, while the vocal version updates they lyrics and features Niki Haris and Jeff Robinson as the 'mouse' and the 'wolf' vocal roles from Loesser's original score.  You can hear both at various times throughout the holiday season on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
