Jazz Beat: Logan Richardson at Take Five and the Blue Room



Logan Richardson knows this city's jazz heritage. He was born and raised here and attended Paseo Academy. When still a teen, he was a featured soloist in a Kansas City Symphony concert. His rich alto-sax tone winds through a post-bop sensibility, recognizing what jazz was while simultaneously reaching for what's next. A dozen years ago, he moved to New York, but he returns here for two shows this weekend. At Take Five on Friday, Richardson joins a quartet of today's young KC jazz stars: Hermon Mehari on trumpet, Peter Schlamb on vibes, Karl McComas-Reichl on bass and John Kizilarmut on drums. Saturday, he headlines at the Blue Room.
