Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by St. James Live, 3220 Butner Road in Atlanta(30331). Join St. James Live for Smooth Sundays on September 30 as they present German Contemporary Jazz Guitarist Nils, on his new CD Play Release Tour. Nils is influenced by funk, Jazz and fusion and has played with Rick Braun, George Benson, The Temptations and others. Doors open 6pm with showtime at 7pm.

Jazz Tones airs on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK on Sundays from 3pm-7pm. This Sunday I'll be joined by Karin Banks and George Freeman, founders of Fusion Ensemble. Fusion's vision is to redefine and re-invigorate the traditional Classical recital platform by creating a more interactive artistic expression between music, dance and spoken word. Fusion IV: Metamorphosis will be performed on Sunday, October 7, at 5:00pm  Emory Performing Arts Studio, 1804 N Decatur Road Atlanta Georgia 30307.

This week on The Local Take I speak with Toni Henson founder and executive director of The Atlanta Black Theatre Festival.  The Festival is scheduled from October 3 - 6 at the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center.   Toni shares with us how she came to establish the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival, her love of theatre and how the festival continues to grow. When asked which is the not to be missed production, Toni explains that "you should pick a day, not a play."

Saturday morning at 8am on The Local Take On WCLK I talked with Cynthia Day, President and CEO of Citizens Trust Bank and co-chair of the Atlanta Business League Super Tuesday taking place on October 2 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. This event will also celebrate the 23rd Anniversary of the 100 Women of Vision Breakfast. Ms. Day speaks with us about the Atlanta Business League and why the Super Tuesday programming is important for our community.
