2017 Jazz Experience: Rhythm Changes

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.

Before the show begins, ticket holders are invited to attend the pre-party from 7-8 PM.  During the party, a cash bar will be available along with live jazz by UMKC students.  Local artist, Hector Garcia, will also display his latest exhibition or art, “Faces of KC Jazz” with works for sale.  Each artwork depicts various Kansas City jazz musicians in pen and ink.  A portion of sales will benefit KC Jazz ALIVE.
