Now's the Time: Jack Walrath
I ran into a loyal advocate of Kansas City's jazz scene at Saturday's Joe Lovano concert. Dismayed by the institution's failure to get the word out about a noteworthy event, he encouraged me to make special mention of a forthcoming appearance by trumpeter Jack Walrath at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. The veteran of Charles Mingus' band plays with the UMKC Concert Jazz Band on Wednesday, April 6. A few tantalizing details are hidden here. But don't tell a soul- it's a secret.
