Best Reason to Believe in Kansas City's Musical History

The Kansas City Sisters of Jazz

Some people relish our town's local history, its cultural status as having been a radical, rollicking jazz capital in the '20s and '30s, chock-full of speak-easies and rife with soon-to-become legendary musicians. The Kansas City Sisters of Jazz not only celebrate the city's history but also work to bring it back. Most recently, the sisters, led by insatiable culture-vulture Anita Dixon, have begun the Artist Relocation Program to attract professional jazz musicians to our low cost of living and deep respect for music. Their first victory: Bobby Bryant, a Los Angeles alto saxophonist compelling not only for his talent but also for his intelligence and sheer passion. Because of him and the sisters, our scene is that much richer -- and going to the bank again soon, we hope.
