Shooting the Breeze with Eddie Saunders

The American Jazz Museum reported that saxophonist and vocalist Eddie Saunders died on December 31.  He's captured in the embedded 2004 video on a break between sets by The Scamps at the Blue Room.  He chats about Kansas City's jazz history, Charlie Parker's plastic sax, playing the ponies, his career, hip hop and popular culture.  "The years go by pretty fast here lately," Saunders says near the conclusion of the enlightening footage.
