Now's the Time: Erykah Badu at the Sprint Center
As an astute writer suggests in a concert preview for The Kansas City Star, Erykah Badu exemplifies the creative spirit of Billie Holiday. Badu tops the bill of the Fountain City Blues & Jazz Festival at the Sprint Center on Friday, October 19. The trumpeter Keyon Harrold is among the jazz-adjacent musicians accompanying Badu in the embedded video. Dozens of additional weekend gigs are listed at The Kansas City Jazz Calendar.
