NexLevel: Chillin'

Twenty years ago an invitation to play at his nephew’s wedding caused Guitarist Mark Jackson to team up with Keyboardist Jesse Thomas to form one of Columbus, Ohio's most popular bands.  NexLevel describes themselves as an eclectic fusion Jazz band. Fast forward to 2020 and NexLevel is self-releasing a record called Midnight Blue, and leading the way is the single Chillin'.  I call it refreshing sound for Jazz radio which is over saxed.  Chillin’ isn’t over produced, there is no exaggerated playing it’s just a simple cool tune with a hand clap beakdown at the 2:20 mark .  So I invite you to do some Chillin’ with Jazz 91.9 WCLK.  

David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.

David C Linton is WCLK's Program Director. Since assuming the position in 2018, he's led Jazz 91.9 WCLK to record-setting ratings and expanded its listening audience. Linton's expertise in both NPR & commercial radio has benefited WCLK. He views WCLK as more than an Atlanta institution but a global media outlet for Jazz. He's enhanced the stations weekend line up by developing Saturdays with Ragan Whiteside and adding producer Bob Baldwin's Nu Urban Jazz Lounge to the Saturday afternoon line up. He reshuffled the Sunday Jazz offerings to provide a unique Mainstream Jazz listening experience on Sundays including the addition of Mainstream and Modern hosted by Rob Maynard. He also added Broadcast Hall of Famer Rick Joyner to the weekday line up as host of Serenade to the The City.
