Jazz Musician David Basse / Hammocks Take Stage on Central Avenue
Who’s the king of KC Jazz?
The question may be up for debate, but David Basse stands as a strong contender. With a long list of recordings and performances to his name, the exuberant, soulful musician has both the critical praise and the chops to claim the KC crown.
On Friday's episode of Up to Date, David Basse joins us in studio to share his exploration of Kansas City jazz, as well as his new recording, “Uptown,” due for release this August.
n Friday's final segment of Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with show producer Stephen Steigman on a lawn outside the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts where one of the installations for this year's Avenue of the Arts is located.
Joining Stephen are Porter Arneill from the Municipal Art Commission and artist Jarrett Mellenbruch, whose installation, "Float" provides a bit of rest from the hustle and bustle of downtown life and conventionering.
