Ben Tankard

Brooklyn is in the house and Mel Holder is on the air on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK. Brooklyn-born saxophonist Mel Holder hails from there and his journey through gospel and jazz music over his career delivers a sound of driving beats and melodies suggestive of Caribbean, international and gospel music. His song Crossroads, off his latest release Music Book, Vol. III(Psalmist Music Group), includes multi-instrumentalist Ben Tankard, and it will keep you moving.

Support for Jazz 91.9 WCLK comes from Wade Ford Concert Series presenting Smooth Summer Nights on Saturday, July 16, 6:00 p.m. at Mable House Barnes Ampitheatre.  The Smooth Summer Nights concert will feature performances by:  Kim Waters, Ben Tankard, Brian Simpson, Eric Darius and Steve Cole.  The show will be hosted by WCLK's Morris Baxter.  Ticket information is available here.
