TitleFlying Home With Mr. Red Top
AbstractThis article is an extensive interview with local jazz musician Ben Kynard. He recalls his early years as well as his memories of early Kansas City jazz. His relationship with jazz musician Lionel Hampton included touring with him from 1946-53 and he recalls many memories from that association.
