Bobby Watson, Blue Room review and photos by kcjazzlark
About a month and a half ago, when they performed with The Kansas City
Symphony, they wore tuxedos. This time, Bobby said, they were wearing
their slippers. I didn’t actually see anybody in slippers at The
Blue Room last Saturday night. But with Bobby Watson’s 18th and Vine Big
Band, I saw a stage filled with a who’s who selection of some of Kansas
City’s best jazz musicians.
