George Duke stopped by Morning Jazz today to talk Jazz-Funk with Morris Baxter. Duke talks about his music, his roots, and the amazing list of musicians he's worked with over the years, including Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, and Frank Zappa.
If you're headed to tonight's WCLK 39th Anniversary Benefit Concert at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, here's a chance to give a listen to this morning's conversation in case you missed it.
Of course, every month is Jazz Appreciation Month at WCLK. But April is officially dubbed so by the Smithsonian Institution.
Many of you will be receiving Jazz Appreciation Month posters as part of your pledge premiums during our recent drive. You can find out more about the Smithsonian's offical celebration by visiting their site here.
Thanks to all of our new and renewing members who made our Spring 2013 Membership Campaign a huge success. If your membership includes tickets to our 39th Anniversary Concert Wednesday featuring George Duke and Gerald Albright, you have two options with regards to getting your tickets.
WCLK is the Jazz AND public affairs of the city. We have been since 1974. Our current partnership with the Center for Cancer Research And Therapeutic Development at Clark Atlanta University is designed to increase awareness of prostate cancer, which kills a disproportionate number of African American men.
