Now's the Time: Marilyn Maye


Marilyn Maye returns to Jardine's for a four-night engagement this week. It should be a real "kick," to use the lingo of this video. The diva recalls her time in Kansas City before crooning a characteristically old-school number. Both The Star and The Sun provide previews of the engagement.

Not only is she one of the precious few surviving links to the glory days of KC jazz, but Marilyn Maye's voice remains an awesome instrument. If you are a vocal jazz lover, you owe it to yourself to catch a set this week.

Whoops! Sorry, Rick, I accidentally republished your comment. So, did you go? How was it?

I caught Grace Kelly at the Blue Room last night. I'll post about it next week.
