Winterlude (Multiple Dates)

Johnson County Community College's Winterlude is back! It looks a bit different for 2016-17, but the intention is the same: to bring some of the best of Kansas City's jazz and world music community to an audience in the comfortable performance spaces in the Carlsen Center.
Winterlude 2016-17 will feature bands on a series of Sunday evenings from 7 to 8:30 p.m. from October to March.
The Winterlude series will include a finale in Yardley Hall, "Jazz 100." It will be a celebration of the anniversaries of a number of jazz greats: Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald and Mongo Santamaria. "Jazz" 100 will feature Dizzy Gillespie’s long-time pianist, Danillo Perez, joined by Chris Potter (tenor sax), Avishai Cohen (trumpet), Wycliffe Gordon (trombone), Ben Street (bass), Adam Cruz (drums), Roman Diaz (percussion) and Lizz Wright (vocals).
