When Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball’s color-barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 he not only changed the game but America too. But before Robinson wore number 42 for the Dodgers, he wore number 5 for the Kansas City Monarchs. 

Jazz & Jackie celebrates his Kansas City professional baseball roots and his unbridled love of jazz, an art form that got its soul in Kansas City. The event marks the anniversary of Robinson’s first game with the Monarchs. 

The program will feature the sultry sounds of Latin Grammy-nominated Jazz Guitarist, and former New York Yankees great, BERNIE WILLIAMS.  Williams will be joined by chart-topping Jazz Bassists JULIAN VAUGHN, who will premiere music from his new album BONA FIDE

Event proceeds benefit the NLBM. EventBrite service fees apply.
