There wasn’t a better place on earth for LaRita to share this piece of Jazz History as the SCAT SINGING took place at the Kansas City Mutual Musicians Foundation on 18th Vine where many Jazz Greats including Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Billie Holliday use to hang out and play when Kansas City was one of the King Cities of Jazz back in the Hey Days of the 1940′s & 1950′s.
