Jazz Beat: 12th Street Jump, at the Broadway Jazz Club



Imagined in part as a jazz version of Prairie Home Companion, 12th Street Jump is a weekly hour of bad jokes and exceptional jazz. These days, it's recorded live at the Broadway Jazz Club, then broadcast on 116 NPR stations. Wednesday, the show celebrates the music of Stax Records star and soul singer Eddie Floyd and blues legend Big Bill Broonzy. The 12th Street Jump band — directed by pianist Joe Cartwright, with bassist Tyrone Clark, drummer Michael Warren, and singers David Basse and Nedra Dixon — is joined by a pair of young KC jazz masters: singer Eboni Fondren and guitarist Matt Hopper.
