As the guitarist of the Count Basie Orchestra, Will Matthews plays swinging Kansas City jazz around the globe. He often performs with an organist and drummer in his hometown when he’s not on the road with the big band. This week's edition of Local Listen features Matthews’ rendition of “Corner Pocket.”

Matthews will play at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7 at the Brookside Jazz Festival at Christ Community Church at 400 W. 67th St. in Kansas City, Missouri.
