On a rainy afternoon in Kansas City, Jay McShann, one of the few surviving greats from the Parker era, lead three Kansas City jazz icons, Mike T. White, Tommy Ruskin, and Milt Abel, back in time to recapture the sound that was, and is, Kansas City jazz. This album is the result. A musical happening that captured a moment in time - preserving it for eternity.
"I've never been awarded a greater honor than to produce this 1991 Grammy nominee, and the first album ever recorded by Jay McShann in his home town." - Curtis Pickering, executive producer
