Jazz 91.9 WCLK--A sound investment for the future.

Guitarist Blair Bryant is back with a song just right for the season. B’s Bounce will have doing just that as this Midwestern born and raised artist lays down some smooth yet funky tracks. It's a cut where you can open the sunroof, drop the top and turn up speakers and cruise to some great Jazz music.

  The new Jazz 91.9 WCLK t-shirt comes in men's and women's styles and sizes. Let everyone know your favorite station by wearing this sharp looking shirt, featuring a unique design for WCLK by Spencer Robinson.

Precious few have earned – just one, really – the honor to be proclaimed "the Grace Jones of jazz," but Lady Blackbird is not your average interpreter. Blackbird released a bold debut last year with her slow-burning version of Nina Simone's "Blackbird," while her second single, "Beware the Stranger," was a similarly intense reworking of "Wanted Dead or Alive," the rare groove classic popularized by the Voices of East Harlem. Last October, she released a gorgeously melancholy take on the James Gang's "Collage."

  The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History creates an annual poster in recognition of Jazz Appreciation Month each April. These posters are collectors items, and reflect a wide range of artistic sensibilities while honoring Jazz musicians that have made a lasting impact on this great American idiom we call Jazz. For 2021 the poster features the great Nina Simone, with artwork by Naa Anyele Sowah-de Jesus, sophmore virtual arts student at the Duke Ellington School of The Arts in Washington, DC.

  The new Jazz 91.9 WCLK baseball cap is white with the red WCLK logo on the front. It is a cotton hat and is adjustable to fit nearly all sizes. Let everyone know your favorite station by wearing this sharp looking cap. Pick up yours with a one-time financial contribution of $126 or $10.50 per month as a sustaining member. A donation at this level also means you will receive the WCLK Member Card as well as the 2021 Smithsonian Jazz Appreciation Poster featuring Nina Simone.

Saturday morning at eight on WCLK's The Local Take, we’re continuing our coverage of Outstanding Women in our community. MedCura Health Centers presented our AARP COVID19 Townhall earlier this month. They are also our non-profit partner for the WCLK Spring Membership Campaign. When you support WCLK financially you can request a portion of your donation goes to non-profit Medcura Health.

Join Clark Atlanta University Director of News and Media Relations Jolene Butts Freeman for CAU Now on WCLK, Saturday morning at 8:30. She'll be joined by Clark Atlanta University School of Education Dean Dr. J. Fidel Turner, Jr., for an upbeat and interesting conversation about the present and the future here at CAU. Among other topics they will discuss the HBCU Cares Initiative, outreach to local high schools, and what it's like to adjust on the fly in higher education during a pandemic.

What does a line from a James Joyce novel sound like on the piano? Or a scribble from the visual artist Cy Twombly? Can you translate the organic architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright into music? For pianist and composer Myra Melford, there is inspiration in all of the above, "a kind of dialogue for me – a thing to bounce my ideas off of."

During our Spring Membership Campaign Jazz 91.9 WCLK is partnered with Medcura Health.  MedCura Health, formerly Oakhurst Medical Centers, Inc., is a 501C (3) nonprofit organization established in 1978 as a community based grassroots not-for profit health care center, providing quality and affordable healthcare services to underserved and underinsured individuals and families in our community.

Our state has the highest number of people per capita under correctional control. The pipeline starts with suspensions and expulsions in Pre-School and ends with Prison.
