Once billed as “Paris of the Plains,” Kansas City has for a century fostered one of the most innovative and beloved Jazz scenes of all time. A city that helped forge the swinging style of the 1930s and that produced the earth-shattering genius of Charlie Parker, Kansas City stands to this day as having one of the most important Jazz scenes the world has ever seen. This four session course may be purchased for $12 each or via an All Access Pass for all Swing U courses for $225.

Jazz at Lincoln Center
The mission of Jazz at Lincoln Center is to entertain, enrich and expand a global community for jazz through performance, education, and advocacy. We believe jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression. Because jazz is swinging, it dedicates that freedom to finding and maintaining common ground with others. Because jazz is rooted in the blues, it inspires us to face adversity with persistent optimism.
