When I walked into 595 North Restaurant and Lounge in Atlanta for the Entertainment Industry Connection conference on Saturday January 5th, an incredible jazz/funk/soul band called Blue Is Free was on stage warming up. One of the cooler things about Atlanta is the astounding number of incredibly-talented young musicians, such as those in this band.
