Award-winning baritone Kevin Mahogany opens the new KC Jazz Club season with this rousing tribute to his native city's musical heritage. The Godfathers of Groove--the revered Hammond B-3, guitar, and percussion trio--along with acclaimed vocalist Kathy Kosins join Mahogany for songs affiliated with the Kansas City sound, as composed or performed by Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Jimmy Rushing, Joe Williams, and other greats. From the R&B of "Shake, Rattle, and Roll"... through the boogie-woogie of "Roll 'em Pete"...the blues of "Cherry Red"…to the jazz of "Parker's Mood"...you'll agree with the New Yorker that "there is little Mahogany cannot do." Part of Prelude 2008: Arts Across America.
