New Music: Rhythm Tribe/You Are The One

Jun 18, 2019

Thomas Guzman-Sanchez has been seeking a fusion of Jazz and Latin sounds in his music since his 1980s group Chain Reaction. After that his project morphed into a group called Rhythm Tribe, then went on hiatus for a number of years. Now they're back, playing a music he calls Acid Latin. The band currently includes his son Mason and daughter Brisa, as well as inventive percussionist Esau Garcia. Atlanta's Jazz Station is currently playing You Are The One from their upcoming record Generations on VRL Muzik, providing a mellow Latin vibe for your day.

Programming on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK is provided in part by The University For Parents, presenting their Inaugural Golf Tournament with Honorary Chair Roland Martin.

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I talked with Brenda Coleman about the University for Parents.  We often hear there is no school for parenting--but now there is for Metro Atlanta.  Ms. Coleman explains that the University for Parents came out of the Susan L. Taylor National Cares Mentoring Movement. While mentoring young people the mentors became aware that parents needed some support as well and the Univerity for Parents was born.

All eyes were on Atlanta’s Woodruff Art Center recently for the red carpet premiere of TVOne’s highly anticipated biopic – The Bobby DeBarge Story.

 

The film explores the tumultuous life of the former lead singer of the 70’s R&B/Funk Band Switch, also the eldest sibling of the world-famous pop group DeBarge. Despite his success in music, the iconic falsetto found his life in peril as he struggled with fame and fortune while coping with the memories of his dysfunctional childhood.

 

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I talked with City of Atlanta City Coucil Members Carla Smith of District 1 and Matt Westmoreland of Post 2 - At Large about the Brown's Mill Urban Food Forest.  I ask the representatives where the vision of a food forest started and the speak about a grant from the US Forestry Service.
