WCLK

I spoke last week on The Local Take on WCLK with Marilyn Winn of Women on the Rise about the new Marijuana Law #17-01152 in Atlanta.

This law seeks to eliminate prison and felony charges from being applied to citizens who are apprehended with small amounts of marijuana. Research conducted by the American Civil Liberties Union/ACLU shows that while Americans use marijuana at the same rates, black people are 3.73 times more likely to be arrested and charged for marijuana use. 

New Music: Turn Up The Quiet By Diana Krall (VIDEO)

Apr 28, 2017

Five time Grammy-winning Jazz Vocalist, Diana Krall is back with a new record on Verve, Turn Up The Quiet. She works out the American Songbook and is produced by fellow Grammy-winner Tommy Lipuma. This new effort features more Jazz standards and, fewer Pop and Rock covers that she's favored on recent records. You can hear cuts from Turn Up The Quiet 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.  For more about Dianna Krall, click here.

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is sponsored in part by the Suite Food Lounge, located at 375 Luckie Street in Downtown Atlanta. The Suite Jazz Series presents Jazz Saxophonist, Everette Harp on Thursday, April 27. Harp Delvers a saxy blend of Contemporary Jazz and classic Soul influenced by artists he's performed with like: Aretha, Phil Perry, Natalie Cole and Herbie Hancock.  Doors open 6:30 p.m., dinner and Jazz at 7:30 p.m.

Jazz Singer and Pianist, Freddie Cole dropped by Midday Jazz with Rivablue to discuss the 40th Atlanta Jazz Festival and Atlanta's 40 Days of Jazz.   Freddie Cole plays the Legends Stage of the Atlanta Jazz Festival in Piedmont Park at 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 28.

Today marks a year since the passing of Prince and we at WCLK are still mourning the loss of a true icon in music. Prince had the uncanny ability to transcend genre and blur the lines between them all. He was a jazz artist, a rock legend, a soul man and so many other great things. This Saturday 4/22/17, I will be reprising the tribute I did for him last year entitled Atlanta Bliss:Saluting The Legacy Of Prince on The S.O.U.L. Of Jazz from 6-9pm est.
