Kansas City Jazz Scene Mourns Dionne Jeroue
A dedication from a Kansas City Jazz insider who sent word our way . . .
"Everyone connected with the KC music community suffered a tremendous loss with the passing of one of our most beloved fellow artists, Ms Dionne Jeroue. She was a tremendous talent, a compassionate and caring friend and had an indomitable spirit and energy that affected and uplifted anyone she was around. She will be sorrily missed by us all indeed. The KC Jazz Lovers Facebook page will be dedicating the weekend to Dionne's memory by posting several of her performance videos one at a time over the course of today and tomorrow. She may not be here with us but her music is alive and kickin in these videos. If you're going to listen, please do her and the musicians justice and put on some phones or buds for sound."
Here's a look at a great moment from Ms. Dionne Jeroue, no that's not TKC playing drums in the background.
