Best of Extra: Leon Brady instructs the youngins in the ways of jazz

One of our profile subjects in this year’s Best Of Kansas City issue is jazzman Leon Brady (“The Teacher”), who leads his young students into battle against the perception that this music is fading.

Brady says, “I tell people: If you think jazz is dying or dead, visit 1317 Central.”

Here’s Brady doing his thing at the Kansas City Youth Jazz Studios on a typical Saturday morning.
