A trifecta of Kansas City Jazz is scheduled for Thursday, December 14th at the Uptown Lounge, located at the corner of 34th and Main Streets. Trombonist and educator Ryan Heinlein brings students from the Johnson County Community College Jazz Program to perform from 7pm to 9pm as part of the Jazz Ambassadors’ Future of Jazz program.
Current members of the Jazz Ambassadors are invited to arrive at 6pm for the Annual Meeting of the Association. The Third annual Kansas City JAM Awards will begin at 8pm, as the City’s favorite jazz musicians, clubs and venues will be honored.
Make sure to go online now at http://www.kcjazzambassadors.org/jam-jazz-awards-finalist-voting-2023 to cast your vote for your favorite KC jazz musicians. Without your support, these wonderful artists would have a tough time practicing their craft in Kansas City. We can all be thankful and celebrate the city’s rich jazz heritage on December 14th, at the newly refurbished Uptown Lounge.
