IT STARTS ON 12th STREET IN KANSAS CITY…
That’s where Count Basie tickled the ivories at the Reno Club and Big Joe Turner shouted the blues. Where cats like Lester Young, Mary Lou Williams, Buster Smith and the Bird lit up a strip of clubs, juke joints, and honky-tonks with their brand new sound.
12th STREET JUMP brings back that great era of Kansas City jazz on public radio’s weekly jazz, blues and comedy jam. Host Eboni Fondren, musical director Jackie Myers, vocalist David Basse, bassist Tyrone Clark and drummer Jim Lower and some very special guests are heard weekly on fifty public radio stations all over the country and online.
