Confirmation: Weekly News & Notes






















*This site is dedicated to music. Nevertheless, when a horrific and mysterious crime scene is discovered just a block from the American Jazz Museum at the Jazz District Apartments, it merits a mention in this space.

*KCUR's KC Currents talked to local jazz fan Elmer Jackson. Download the program here. The jazz segment begins around the 44:00 mark. Look for Plastic Sax's assessment of the Blue Note Records listening party at the Blue Room in a post next week.

*Of the seven Kansas City-related jazz nominees at this year's Grammy Awards, only Bob Brookmeyer triumphed Sunday. He contributed to the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra's Monday Night Live.

Thanks for the mention, Bill! People are welcome to listen to the whole show, but there's also a direct link to the Elmer Jackson story here:

Thanks, Sylvia. Sorry I didn't get to say hello to you at the Blue Room on Tuesday. I was too portly to navigate the tight quarters to reach you at that back table.

Yeah . . . I was wedged in pretty far back! Didn't see you . . .
