Chick Corea via Concord Music, has released a multidisc, multimedia collection documenting his 2011 series of 70th Birthday celebration performances at the famed Blue Note.  Corea is featured in 10 different bands featuring some 30 different musicians, including:   Herbie Hancock, Bobbie McFerrin, Gary Burton, Wynton Marsalis, John McLaughlin, Stanley Clarke, Chick Corea Electrik Band and Return To Forever, among others. You can hear select cuts from The Musician at various times on  Jazz 91.9 WCLK and WCLK HD2 in particular during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. 

The life and music of legendary Jazz Saxophonist John Coltrane is coming to U.S. theaters via a new documentary film titled, “Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary.”  Written and directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker, John Scheinfield, “Chasing Trane” is an extraordinary project about one of the most iconic Jazz musicians of all time, John Coltrane and is told by those artists who knew him the best and admired him the most.

In 2008, Wynton Marsalis was commissioned to produce a piece of music honoring the 200th Anniversary of Harlem's Abyssinian Baptist Church. The resulting sacred celebration included the full Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra as well as a 70 piece gospel choir. In 2013, Damian Speed and his Chorale Le Chateau toured the country with Marsalis and the LCO, playing the piece to mesmerize audiences. This music has finally been released on Blue Engine Records, and I will be featuring assorted cuts on Serenade To The City on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.   

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.
