2017 Jazz Experience: Rhythm Changes
Sat 08/26/17 | 8pm
Before there was hip-hop, rock and pop, Kansas City Jazz was all the rage – where the likes of Benny Moten and Charlie Parker birthed a sound that would forever change the landscape of music. Experience the evolution of jazz from ragtime to bebop as KC Jazz Alive presents Kansas City musicians alongside tenor saxophonist Tivon Pennicott (3-time Grammy Award Winner) and pianist Sullivan Fortner (2015 Cole Porter Fellowship in Jazz winner) in conjunction with the 4th Annual Charlie Parker Celebration. This is one jam session you won’t want to miss.
Ticket holders are invited to arrive early for cocktails in the The Folly Theater lobby at 7pm. A cash bar will be available while live jazz plays throughout the party!
During the pre-party, enjoy caricature drawings of your favorite KC jazz musicians! Hector Garcia’s “Faces of Kansas City Jazz” art exhibition will be on display with works for sale. A percentage of each purchase will benefit KC Jazz ALIVE!
