The Kansas City Jazz Orchestra’s debut performance in 2003 was headlined by the marvelous Marilyn Maye––a nationally celebrated, GRAMMY-nominated musical legend with deep ties to Kansas City. From her longtime residency at KC’s Colony Steakhouse beginning in the late ‘50s, appearing 76 times on Johnny Carson’s The Tonight Show, and now frequently selling out clubs throughout the country, Maye continues to lead a storied career in her 95th year. Twenty years later, KCJO is thrilled to share the stage with Maye once again, one of the finest stewards of the Great American Songbook, and a quintessential storyteller often referring to the lyric as conversation.
