Kansas City Youth Jazz

Kansas City Youth Jazz

Pop, rock and rap might top the charts, but it’s good old Jazz that’s capturing the hearts of at least some of the new generation of area musicians.

In the first half of Thursday’s Central Standard – we'll take a look at KC Youth Jazz, a group that’s expanded into more than 50 schools around greater Kansas City. We’ll hear some music, talk concerts, appreciation, preservation – all that jazz with Musical Director and instructor Clarence Smith.
