Jazz is often portrayed as a family tree, with branches running from folks like Bessie Smith to Charlie Parker to Herbie Hancock, intertwining here and there throughout the history of the music. Sometimes, though, we are blessed with generations of artists, talent and love for the music passed down from season to season. In Kansas City, one such legacy of royalty exists in the phenomenal McFaddens. Sharing their story are Lonnie and Chloe, inviting us all to a veritable holiday dinner where everyone is welcome.
