“If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn.” ~Charlie Parker
If you find yourself ever in your life in Kansas City,Mo you have got to go to the American Jazz Museum which has one of the most extensive collection of jazz artifacts to suit any sensibility.
Click on and you will see images from my "If Jazz was a Color"? exhibitiob in the Changing Room Gallery featured there. The AJM also house the Blue Room at the famous 16th & Vine where you ears will have a feast to compliment what the eyes dined on.
There is a excellent sculpture in the backside of the museum, of Charlie "Bird" Parker native son.
