Bob James

The late, great Al Jarreau is a timeless Jazz vocalist whose music always had a home on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK. His legacy is reflected in new tribute album from Vocalist Chris Walker. Walker got his start singing in his church choir, spent time playing bass for Free Jazz Master Ornette Coleman and others including Regina Belle. Belle insisted he was hiding his vocal talents.

Support for Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK comes from Live Nation, presenting Double Vision Revisited, featuring Bob James, David Sanborn and Marcus Miller live at Candence Bank Ampitheatre At Chastain Park for one night only, Thursday, August 22 at 8pm. Joining them on stage will be Larry Braggs and Billy Tilson. Ticket information is available at
