"Everybody in the band is writing and very well-rehearsed at the professional level.  They have been working on this concert for over a year, and are seriously dedicated to the music." 

- Bobby Watson, University of Missouri Kansas City  


A "Neo-Soul Quartet," Shades of Jade has already taken their local Kansas City scene by storm.  The experimental group genuinely connects with the young and young at heart by blending the energy and feel of 90s R&B music with the traditional Kansas City jazz roots from the 40s - 60s. Performing their senior recital, the quartet consists of two new graduates under the influence of Kansas City's own Bobby Watson:  Joshua Williams (Semi-Finalist 2010 National Jazz Trumpet Competition), Eddie Moore (keys), Dominique Sanders (bass), and Julian Goff (drums). 

NOTE:  A few of the band members have even traveled and performed with Bobby Watson in Japan.

Tickets:  Call 314.534.1111 or visit Metrotix

What's Your Jazz I.Q.?

Anonymous Asks: "I've heard about the International Jazz Day that took place on April 30th, but where can I learn more about it?"

Answer:  April 30th was the inaugural International Jazz day that featured hundreds, if not thousands, of artists.  You can learn more by visiting jazzday.com."

Thanks for asking because "I Love Jazz" -- on HEC-TV, Loudcaster, Live365.COM, and now on TUNE-IN Radio.
