Kansas City's Jazz Wellspring
Many of my favorite moments as a jazz fan in Kansas City occur while listening to the University of Missouri-Kansas City's music students. It's exciting to watch kids discover their own voices. The career prospects of most of these students may be sketchy, but it's thrilling to know that for as long as Bobby Watson continues to teach at UMKC there will be no shortage of vital new talent in this town.
