Today we pretend to celebrate International Jazz Day in Kansas City.
To wit . . .
REALITY CHECK: KANSAS CITY JAZZ ONE OF THE MOST TIRESOME AND OVERLY EXAGGERATED NONEXISTENT LOCAL LEGACIES!!!
Kinda like the fact that Ernest Hemingway never really wrote anything of substance in this cowtown OR that Walt Disney was sort of a Nazi sympathizer who might have his head on ice somewhere.
Anyhoo . . .
Here's how the City will promote the celebration:
"Celebrate International Jazz Day on April 30 at Kansas City’s American Jazz Museum. The Museum brings jazz history to life with touch screens, listening stations, collections of photos, sheet music, posters, and more. Children can make their own instruments at the Jazz Discovery Area. Experience live music at the Gem Theatre and Blue Room nightclub, the latter of which features performances four nights a week."
Perspective . . . Back when it was relevant, people hated Jazz dudes as much as hip-hop artists . . . Now KC Jazz is mostly a hobby for old school white guys and rap music is making that same progression. Examples: Eminem and Mac Lethal.
TKC only listens to disco.
