'Tis the season to be jazzed for sure!
We love our holiday jazz, those familiar tunes that conjure up great memories and heart warming feelings of the past. But its also a season of reflection that allows for focus on what is truly important. Enter the Will Scruggs Jazz Fellowship with a rich, inspirational musical excursion through the story of Christmas, entitled, "Song Of Simeon: A Christmas Journey.
Tune in to The Jazz Spot tonight to hear my conversation with Will Scruggs as he shares his passion about this amazing project!
Will Scruggs is an Atlanta native, and an Emory University Gradauate. At Emory University, Will was named the top college jazz musician of 2001 in Alabama and Georgia by the Alabama Jazz and Blues Federation. While attending Emory he studied saxophone with Nathanael Fareed Mahluli and was mentored by Gary Motley and Rev. Dr. Dwight Andrews. After becoming the first student ever to graduate from Emory with Highest Honors in Jazz Performance, “Mr. Scruggs” joined Teach for America to teach first grade in Southeast Atlanta.
