Album Notes
The Kansas City jazz scene of today is vibrant. The number of world-class jazz musicians that live and work here contributes greatly to that vibrancy. During the past 25 years, I have had the opportunity to share the stage with many Kansas City jazz musicians who I consider to be "world class." The spirit of their music resonates deeply with audiences here and around the world.
Several years ago I established the Best of Kansas City Jazz Series in the Oak Bar at the Fairmont Kansas City at the Plaza. My goal was to give Kansas City jazz audiences a chance to hear the "best" in an intimate setting and experience the magic of spontaneous creation. As the series grew in popularity, I decided to document the weekly performances. With the help of Chris Crabtree, we recorded 12 of the series' featured artists backed by a three piece rhythm section. We edited 24 hours of recorded music down to 60 minutes to bring you "The Best of Kansas City Jazz." What makes a Kansas City jazz musician the "best"?
They are a master of their instrument, they have established their own unique voice as a jazz artist, they have distinguished themselves as representatives of Kansas City jazz through their recordings and performances on the national and international stage, and despite all their accolades, they retain a humility that is refreshing.
-Joe Cartwright
