Don't forget to catch this week's edition of "UPFRONT" Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. I got a chance to chat with child stars Nadej Bailey and Lil Dee Dee and their acting coach + accomplish TV and film actor Neko Parham

Jazz 91.9 WCLK is the Official Station of the 40th Atlanta Jazz Festival which takes place Memorial Day weekend at Piedmont Park.  A highlight of this year’s festival is the Late Night Jazz Jam at Park Tavern featuring Drummer Lil John Roberts and The All Star Band in a powerful tribute to Jazz legend, Miles Davis.   Featured in the band is Trumpeter Russell Gunn & French musician Mino Cinélu.   Cinélu is known primarily for his work as a Jazz percussionist.

Atlanta is like a second home to Grammy-nominated Pianist Robert Glasper.  He took time away today from recording and writing sessions in the ATL to talk a few minutes with Nicole Sweeney on The Midday Jazz Swing on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.

He's in town working on sessions with Lil' Jon Roberts and Russell Gunn, and is writing material for the upcoming Chaka Khan album he will be producing, as well as the follow up to Black Radio, tentatively titled Black Radio Volume 2.
