Local Listen: Matt Kane & The Kansas City Generations Sextet
New York based drummer Matt Kane returned to Kansas City last year to record compositions by Ahmad Alaadeen, Pat Metheny and Bobby Watson. The resulting album, Acknowledgement, features the Kansas City Generations Sextet, an ensemble of local luminaries including local saxophonist Steve Lambert and trumpeter Hermon Mehari. This week’s Local Listen is a sensitive rendition of Metheny’s “Question and Answer”.
Matt Kane reunites with members of the band Friday and Saturday, April 24-25, at the Green Lady Lounge to celebrate the release of "Acknowledgement".
