Jazz Beat: Jazz Disciples with Lisa Henry, at the Blue Room 

Lisa Henry already had a huge following in Kansas City before she competed in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition. When she took second place in the contest in 1994, she captured the world's notice, too. Henry's vibrant voice, layered with a delightful sass, masterfully swings through jazz standards. On Friday, she joins the Jazz Disciples, a quartet of local jazz masters, led by Gerald Dunn's fun and thoughtfully inviting alto sax. This is the music of 18th and Vine played with a contemporary sensibility, then interwoven with a voice and a vocal style honored as one of the best.
