American Jazz Museum's New Executive Director Will Lead Push to Prominence - KC STUDIO

Harold Smith: What makes the American Jazz Museum different and a "must see" place for jazz enthusiasts? Rashida Phillips: Certainly, the AJM has a lens on what Kansas City has contributed to the industry and to the music.

Never been there. Only been to the NLBM twice. Will only go to the Gem when they turn it to a grindhouse theatre and show old movies from back in the day.

^^Thanks Boomer. I'm sure they would miss the buck and a quarter you would spend. Stick to spending your day sipping coffee at Bob Evans all day long.

Jazz is for overweight old men in their 60's and 70's who are deaf from loud music and dont appreciate Rock & Roll music. Many jazz lovers are antisocial and have underlying mental health issues. They are mostly failures in life.

Jazz is a weird music. It dont help that the jazz greats were opium addicts and gays. Its a dark and depressing music of death
