Blue Note Recording Artist Kandace Springs' music has had a home on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK from her very first recordings. She's been by the station a few times, and has family in Atlanta. We're all happy with her ongoing success. She is the final performer of the weekend on the Oak Hill Stage at the 42nd Atlanta Jazz Festival tonight at 7:30pm. As always, this event is open to the public. So come on down and dig one of the up and coming singer-songwriters contemporary Jazz has to offer. Kandace called up Jamal Ahmad to talk about her career, and her AJF performance.
