Millie Edwards may be one of the smallest members of KC’s jazz community, but she owns one of the biggest voices on the scene. This week’s Local Listen features her collaboration with pianist Mike Pagán on the Duke Ellington composition “In a Mellow Tone.”

HEAR MORE: Edwards entertains every Monday at The Phoenix. On Sunday, March 8, she’ll be featured in a KC Jazz Vespers concert at the First Baptist Church of Kansas City. Admission is free.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region. Email me at lisa@kcur.org or follow me on Twitter @larodrig.
