Now's the Time: Izabel Crane
Izabel Crane, a band from Springfield, Missouri, references Billie Holiday and Django Reinhardt as it characterizes its sound as Ozark jazz. While I hear a lot more Bill Monroe than Charlie Parker, I’m inclined to like the ostensible hybrid. Izabel Crane performs in the Gospel Lounge at Knuckleheads on Thursday, February 22. Dozens of more conventional jazz bookings are posted at the Kansas City Jazz Calendar.
