Getting a Kick Out of Myra Taylor
A Kickstarter campaign for a musical based on the life of Myra Taylor has raised less than five percent of its goal of $14,000. While I can't vouch for the project, I know that's it's impossible to recall Taylor's frequent performances during the last two decades of her life without smiling. Her 2001 album My Time to Dream is one of the most enjoyable traditional Kansas City jazz recordings of the past 25 years.
