I am just coming off a SLAM. Pool is crystal clear. Should I be concerned with the High Alkalinity? I was going to add a little chlorine to keep it a bit higher with the CC of 0.5. Any other suggestions?

FC 9
CC 0.5
pH 7.6
TA 120
CH 400
CYA 70
Temp 74

Short answer: no.

When the pH rises to 7.8, add acid to get it down to 7.2. That'll shave 10 points off the TA right there. It'll come down over time as long as you maintain pH. There's no point in getting aggressive with it.
