Listen to Jazz Tones this Sunday from 3pm-7pm on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK. I will interview Mark Winkler, platinum award-winning singer/lyricist. His recent release with Cheryl Bentyne from Manhattan Transfer, Eastern Standard Time(Cafe Pacific Records), includes  songs of East Coast lineage that will remind listeners of the music performed in jazz clubs in New York City between 1950-1960. 

Jazz Tones airs on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK on Sundays from 3pm-7pm. This Sunday I'll be joined by Karin Banks and George Freeman, founders of Fusion Ensemble. Fusion's vision is to redefine and re-invigorate the traditional Classical recital platform by creating a more interactive artistic expression between music, dance and spoken word. Fusion IV: Metamorphosis will be performed on Sunday, October 7, at 5:00pm  Emory Performing Arts Studio, 1804 N Decatur Road Atlanta Georgia 30307.

Join me Sunday from 3pm-7pm for Jazz Tones on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK. Sunday's special guest will be Awilda Rivera. Rivera is a retired on air announcer at WBGO in Newark, where she was on the air for over twenty years. She has hosted on weekends-- Jazz After Hours, Sunday Morning Harmony, and Latin Jazz Cruise.
