TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JARDINE'S STAYS DARK FOR YET ANOTHER WEEKEND AS THE KANSAS CITY JAZZ CLUB'S BRAND NAME CONTINUES TO ERODE!!!



9PM on Saturday Night over the weekend . . . Nobody loves a basement blogger so I had nothing better to do than grab a photo of formerly beloved Kansas City Jazz Club closed and remaining silent.

To wit . . .

THE JARDINE'S BRAND HAS BEEN ALL BUT DECIMATED BY THE RECENT CONTROVERSY AND CLEARLY THE KANSAS CITY JAZZ SCENE HAS LEARNED TO SURVIVE WITHOUT THE SO-CALLED "INSTITUTION" THAT HAS MOSTLY FADED OUT OF MEMORY!!!

It was a nice spot and a ton of talented local musicians played a lot of great shows there . . . BUT . . . Kansas City can only mourn for so long and the club's 15 minutes are up.

There was silly talk that Jardine's somehow "supported" musicians but all of those acts aren't starving on local streets . . . They've found other gigs. Jazz aficionados are now @ The Phoenix, The Majestic or maybe even listening to music that's even more relevant than the mostly old school offerings the old management preferred.

Kansas City Jazz is still evolving in a lot of ways like the stuff Mark Lowrey is doing with his jazz/piano/hip-hop fusion.

So when I think about all of the fun but pointless gossip about new owners buying whatever is left of a badly damaged brand, I realize . . .

THE LEGACY OF KANSAS CITY JAZZ IS BIGGER THAN ONE TROUBLED KANSAS CITY CLUB!!!

Most assertions otherwise are probably sponsored content.

DEVELOPING. . .

  1. Phoenix is run and managed by a "Beena Jr"..... so just hide and watch.

  2. Tony, you calim to have 25,000 unique hits a day, Hearne claims the same amount.

    The Jardines legacy is alive and thriving in spite of zero money spent on adveretising, no musicians, no food, no lights on, hell, Beena can milk this baby for a year or two with publicity like this.

    She has got to have you on her Christmas list.

    I am thinking a gift certificate for a "La Raza" tattoo.

  3. Chuck, I've never made any specific claims about the traffic for this site. Not once, not ever. I really don't care how many of you d-bags show up and since I don't take advertising cash it doesn't really matter anyhoo.

    As with most stats you tout across the Internets, you're mostly making it up.

  6. I'd think Jardine's is just too small to make any real $$$.
    Someone should put a big swing jazz band in what used to be America's Pub.

  7. Tony, I thought during your Pitch Story there was a calim of x amount of hits.

    Ok, if I was wrong about that I apologise.

    The Dept of Justice stats and the FBI Stats you don't like, sorry, stats are stats, they are not made up.

    In fact, most of those stats are skewed because of the penchent of the Govt, to now lump in Hispanic with whites, to make the stats less offensive.

    You, of all people, should be ok with the truth.

    It'll set ya free Tony.
