Serenade To The City on WCLK

Paul Hardcastle can be called a music producing machine as he keeps churning out songs. This new single Latitude follows his Dancing Galaxies and it features the signature "Hardcastle Sound", which has made Paul a core artist in the Groove/Smooth Jazz format for  many years.  Latitude is a mellow track with a little toe tapping  quality that will make you want to move your head while chilling with that special someone. It's the first single off of his upcoming album Paul Hardcastle 9 on Trippin N Rhythm Records.

Art Sherrod Jr./Rhythm Of Life

Jun 5, 2020

Art Sherrod Jr, is a Jazz artist who has been influenced by some of the genre’s best saxophonists. This former U.S. Naval Academy student hid his talent while at the Academy only to recognize music was his true calling. He’s shared the stage with artists such as Angie Stone, Will Downing, and Najee. The brand new single Rhythm of Life (Train Station Records) really captures his feeling about music & life, because life does have a soundtrack.  

Blake Aaron is back with a new single and album, titled Daylight on Innervision Records. It features Blake’s signature guitar strumming on a song that has an island flavor. The song takes you to the beach or a tropical place where you can imagine waking to the first signs of daylight! Blake has been delivering Jazz radio hit after hit and his winning streak doesn’t seem to be slowing down. This song is great for riding, chilling or whatever you may decide to do. I felt this is one WCLK listeners would enjoy.

Ashleigh Smith returns with a song that on first listen reminds us why she was the winner of the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition in 2014. Her debut album Sunkissed was released on Concord Records in 2016. Let It Rain (TopCat Records) is her first single since 2017 features fellow songbird Chantae Cann.

Coming off the success of Carmanology which featured 3 singles including the Billboard Smooth Jazz Top 5 Hit State of Mind, Allen Carman returns with Rosario (Allen Carmen Project), the lead track from the forthcoming album by the same name. Rosario is a tribute to the late Saxophonist Gato Barbieri.
