Atlanta Jazz Festival
To say one doesn’t like jazz is like saying one doesn’t like green foods. They all taste different, how could you possibly blanket those poor green foods! But, I digress. Atlanta Jazz Fest will whisk you away to other lands, without leaving the A. Plus, it’s two FREE days of live music in Piedmont Park. Need I say more?! But of course I will!
I’m looking forward to the soulful depth of vocalist and Georgia native, Lizz Wright, and the swanky sounds of Alex Lattimore. Also, Kandace Springs — inspired by Nina Simone, and a favorite of Prince, RIP — takes the stage Saturday evening with a voice that rivals Sade, a description I never use lightly.
Also, on a quest to find Morris in the Morning, Jazz 91.9 WCLK’s morning DJ, Morris Baxter. [It shouldn’t be too hard, he’s on Facebook and at WCLK in the a.m. — Editor] If you ain’t in on Baxter’s morning motivations, know that, according to Baxter, “it’s for you because it’s way bigger than me!” and that “something good is going to happen to me [and you] today.”
