INSTRUMENTAL TO KC

Since the early 20th century, KC has been
synonymous with jazz. Those roots still
run deep-the genre is as vibrant as ever,
fueling more than 40 jazz and fine-dining
venues every night of the week. But the
musicians of yesteryear paved the way for
the scene today.
Some of KC's most famous jazz players
and the instruments they're known for:
Native son Charlie "Yardbird" Parker
made his name right here in KC,
thanks in part to his bebop skills on
the sax.
King of vaudeville and big bands, the
influential Count Basie tickled the
ivories at places like the legendary
Reno Club.
Known for her husky voice and
risqué lyrics, marquee maven Julia
Lee later became a bona fide blues
star and national recording artist.
