I’m taking a break from the blog this week.
But before I do, a reminder: Saturday is the 2015 Prairie Village Jazz Festival at Harmon Park, 7700 Mission Road (next to Shawnee Mission East High School and Prairie Village City Hall). It opens at 2:30 p.m. (not 2:00 like all of the signs I’ve seen mistakenly state) with the SM East Blue Knights followed by the Peter Schlamb Quartet at 3:20. Tyrone Clark and True Dig with Lisa Henry at 4:30, Horacescope at 5:40, Matt Kane and the Kansas City Generations Sextet at 6:50, and Angela Hagenbach at 8:00. The evening concludes by pairing the McFadden Brothers with The Kansas City Jazz Orchestra at 9:15 in a show that promises oodles of fun. Actually, the entire day ought to be oodling fun. The forecast looks ideal. Just five bucks gets you in. See you there.
