SOUL of Jazz on WCLK

The production projects of legendary U.K producer/songwriter Simon law are no stranger to many of your music playlists. His work can be heard from a diverse array of artists in the 90s like Soul II Soul, Maurice White(EWF), Maxi Priest, Maysa, Chante Moore, Lucky Dube and so many others. His 2017 solo album Look To The Sky, which featured many of his cohorts from those days of yore, was a staple on my show, The S.O.U.L Of Jazz.

Music is the Universal language and these five talented twenty-something musicians from Budapest who call themselves The Peet Project are proof. Galaxies is the second single from their full length project Ups And Downs (Beagle Beat Records). It's the perfect follow up to Let's Do This, the first single. Galaxies is perfect for a Fall drive, a soundtrack for work, or if you just want to hear some feel-good music.

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.

Incognito returns to Cobb Energy Centre for their 40th anniversary tour with special guest Maysa and Citrus Sun tonight at 7:30 p.m.  Bluey, the band's guiding light, stopped by WCLK to talk with me about the show and much else during The SOUL of Jazz.
