Japanese Saxophonist WaKaNa has collaborated with singers, rappers and DJs. She made her U.S. debut in 2018 with her album Saxcess Story produced by Greg Manning. She’s back with SilK , the title track to her new self released album. SilK is a song that lives up to its name but don’t think this is a laid back song. SilK has some bounce that will have you nodding your head or grooving in your seat. WaKaNa has participated in the Jazzy Hip Hop compilation series In Ya Mellow Tone which has sold over 340,000 copies. On SilK, she moves to re-establish her U.S. presence and it’s one this programmer is happy to welcome to the airwaves of WCLK. You can hear WaKaNa and her silky sounds during Midday Jazz with Rivablue on Atlanta’s Jazz Station 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.
