Mutual Musicians Foundation http://kcur.org en Mutual Musicians Foundation's Spirit Won't Stop http://kcur.org/post/mutual-musicians-foundations-spirit-wont-stop <p>For more than eighty years, the small two-story building at 1823 Highland Avenue has been the heart of Kansas City jazz. Today it’s the Mutual Musician’s Foundation, but in 1917, the building became the headquarters for the Local 627 Colored Musician’s Union. Over the decades, nearly every jazz great in the country has jammed here, and the all-night weekend jam sessions have also served as training grounds for jazz students. Susan Wilson spent a late night there to find out what draws audiences and keeps them until the 6 a.m. closing time.</p> Sun, 26 Aug 2012 22:00:10 +0000 Susan B.
