Renowned Jazz Pianist Teaches Music In Birmingham

Vic Atkins reports that NBC 13 news in Birmingham recently ran a story on “Brother” Atkins and how his life has changed as a result of Hurricane Katrina. Like many of Katrina’s victims, he and his family lost most everything they had in the hurricane. It is encouraging to learn that he is using this time in Birmingham to teach music and improvisational jazz to students at the Alabama School of Fine Arts. The story also notes that Brother Atkins can be heard on Aaron Neville’s new Christmas CD.
