Jamal Ahmad


UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry kicked off our celebration of Black Music Month recently with an exclusive interview featuring Earth Wind and Fire legend Philip Bailey. The music icon is releasing a new jazz album, Love Will Find A Way and talked about collaborating with the new giants of jazz: Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington, Christian Scott and more.

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.

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by support from the West Georgia Jazz Festival, taking place on Saturday, April 27 beginning at 4pm at the Mill Ampitheatre in charming Downtown Villa Rica. Violinist Ken Ford will be the featured artist, with appearances scheduled for DynaGroove and Canelita Sabrosa. The West Georgia Jazz Festival features food and drink as well as other vendors on site. Jazz 91.9 WCLK's S.O.U.L. of Jazz Host Jamal Ahmad will be hosting this event.
