Kansas City is known as one of the most popular "cradles of Jazz" in the world. In the 1930's while Charles Phillips was building a landmark hotel at the corner of 12th and Baltimore, a style of music that would become known as Kansas City Jazz was coming into its own just a few blocks away at 18th and Vine.
Count Basie, Myra Taylor and local Charlie Parker were among the forerunners of what would put the city on the map for decades to come. Their traditions have been carried on by the likes of Millie Edwards, Karrin Alyson, Stan Kessler, Angela Hagenbach, Joe Cartwright and countless others, who perform live every Saturday from 8:00 - 11:00PM.
