Now's the Time: Shades of Jade
Inspired by Robert Glasper and Sean Jones, Shades of Jade is at the vanguard of the burgeoning youth movement on Kansas City's jazz scene. I've seen the quartet perform at the Brick, the Mutual Musicians Foundation, the main stage at the Plaza Art Fair and at a fashionable boutique in recent months. In each instance, the quartet adeptly tailored its approach to the demands of the setting. Shades of Jade are certain to excel in a 8:30 p.m. performance on Friday, December 14, at Take Five Coffee + Bar.
