Produced by KCUR
Most recent piece in this series:
Public Radio's weekly jazz, blues and comedy jam, 12th STREET JUMP celebrates America's original art form, live from one of its birthplaces, 12th Street in Kansas City. That is where Basie tickled and ivories and Big Joe Turner shouted the blues. Each week, hosts Pearl MacDonald and Pete Weber offer up a lively hour of topical sketch comedy and some great live jazz and blues from the 12th STREET JUMP band (musical director Joe Cartwright, along with Tyrone Clark on bass and Mike Warren on drums) and vocalists David Basse and Nedra Dixon. Special guests join the fun every week down at the 12th Street Jump.
