Atlanta Jazz Festival Celebrates 40 Years


 For 40 years, magnificent acts have performed on the AtlantaJazz Festival stages and for the 40th anniversary, When We Speak TV was represented , once again as authorized media.

There was so much to see, hear, and do that there is no way that we could document it all. 
Following the tradition of Atlanta Jazz Festivals of the past, the 40th anniversary celebration was a free, three stage festival filled with entertainment during the Memorial Day weekend, beginning on Friday, May 26th, with the Cuban inspired sounds of the Pedrito Martinez Group.  Closing the night on the Legends Stage was Grammy Award winning ensemble, Robert Glasper Experiment


On Saturday, May 27th, we moved to the Contemporary Stage to enjoy Moonchild, a smooth soul band based out of LosAngeles, Nik West who gave us some funk and rock vibes, and ending the day was Grammy Award winning singer, Macy Gray.  

Sunday, May 28th, was definitely an exciting day because three When WeSpeak TV guests performed.  On the Legends Stage, Chandra Currelley performed in a memorable ensemble tribute to jazz legend, Sarah Vaughan.  Singer, Julie Dexter, performed on the Contemporary Stage with guitarist, Jacob Deaton, and flutist, Rasheeda Ali, also on the Contemporary Stage, trumpeter, RussellGunn, totally blew us away with Kebbi Williams and Wolf Pack.  

Like I said before, there was so much to see, hear, and do that we can't document it all.  That's why we hope to speak with YOU at the Atlanta JazzFestival.
