Ragan Whiteside

2020 will go down as a year to remember or one we may want to forget; one thing is for sure it had some memorable music. Several artists like Ragan Whiteside, Paul Hardcastle Phil Denny, Carol Albert and Julian Vaughn maintained their Billboard Smooth Jazz chart prowess. Some Jazz veteran acts like Spyro Grya, Kirk Whalum, Bob Baldwin and Hiroshima, showed they can still deliver despite all of the new artists emerging on the scene. As we ring in the new year Jazz 91.9 WCLK will countdown the Top 50 Smooth Jazz Songs of 2020.

Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. It features my conversations with veteran actress and dancer Trina Parks, smooth jazz flutist Ragan Whiteside and High Museum of Art Curator Michael Rooks. 

Ragan Whiteside continues to release Billboard chart scoring music. A streak that began in 2019 continues, as we reach the second half of 2020.
