KC Jazz History


Adam Lee, a Los Angeles-area band leader and Kansas City historian, presents an intersectional seminar situated at crossroads fo Kansas City swing and early transportation. “Vine Street Junction: A Multi-Tracked View on the Railroad as it Pertains to the Kansas City Jazz Experience”, details the influence of the nation’s bustling rail lines and locomotives on the spread of Kansas City music beyond the region, and the drawing of musicians into the heartland. The exploration of this relationship will surely intrigue musicians, historians, and dancers alike with the scope of its research.

This seminar is hosted by 627 Stomp and will be held for one hour and a half, including a fifteen minute Q&A session.

Also, make sure to come see Adam perform with his band, the L.A. Swing Barons, at 9 PM the night before at the Chesterfield!
