Goin' to Kansas City
"A big juicy wedge of jazz history. . . . Lots of wonderful stories."
-- Los Angeles Daily News
"Kansas City was a hub for Jazz bands that crisscrossed the country in the 1930s. . . . The interviews go beyond jazz into the infamous political machinery that made Kansas City a wide-open and corrupt town where jazz could flourish."
"A wealth of stories, a good measure of entertainment and a valuable stab at history -- not to mention some great pictures."
-- The Kansas City Star
