Bob and I will be back to Montana next week! Bob has been very busy playing with wonderful Kansas City musicians. Luckily weather has been warm and gorgeous for outside music events and KC jazz lovers respect all the distancing and face mask rules to safely enjoy live performances. We can’t predict what’s going to happen in our future but we appreciate all the opportunities, for musicians to play and for music lovers to enjoy listening to, live music.
