It’s the spoken word with a strong backbeat, voice, and rhythm. Jazz and poetry have historically been interwoven throughout the 20th century. From the early lyrics of blues musicians to the permutations of jazz in the hip-hop generation, the fusion of these two art forms is electric. Join national poets and musicians as they scat, signify, and stir your soul in the KC Jazz Club, the Kennedy Center’s newest jazz club setting.
All events and artists subject to change without prior notice.
