Sure, Kansas City is known for jazz, but how much of that music are you taking in? Johnson County Community College is making it easier for those who want to feel the music. Today and Saturday, the school's Carlsen Center (12345 College Boulevard, Overland Park, 913-469-4445) puts on Jazz Winterlude

The bill, beginning at 7 p.m., includes the David Basse Orchestra; Grammy nominee Julian Lage; and Deborah Brown, a world-renowned singer originally from KC. Saturday's lineup, beginning in the afternoon, includes pianist Eldar Djangirov, Alaturka, Diverse, and the New Red Onion Jazz Babies. All performances are free. See jccc.edu/music
