Now's the Time: Kevin Mahogany
Before achieving international acclaim as a jazz vocalist, Kevin Mahogany regularly performed in a variety of contexts at Kansas City joints like Jimmy's Jigger. Plastic Sax fondly recalls his versions of hits by the Temptations, Randy Travis, Luther Vandross, Jon Hendricks and Joe Turner. Mahogany returns to Kansas City Saturday for a show at the Folly. Joe Klopus notes Mahogany's all-star band in his preview of the concert. Mahogany's sense of playfulness is shown to good effect in this video.
