Ron-carter_small

Public Radio's weekly jazz, blues and comedy jam, 12th STREET JUMP celebrates America's original art form, live from one of its birthplaces, 12th Street in Kansas City. That is where Basie tickled and ivories and Big Joe Turner shouted the blues. Each week, host Ebony Fondren offers up a lively hour of topical sketch comedy and some great live jazz and blues from the 12th STREET JUMP band (musical director Jackie Myers, along with Tyrone Clark on bass and Jim Lower on drums) and vocalist David Basse. Special guests join the fun every week down at the 12th Street Jump.
