Jazz Beat: Peter Schlamb Quartet, at Take Five Coffee + Bar 

The vibraphone has always found a home in jazz (think Lionel Hampton and Milt Jackson) but not so often in Kansas City. Until now. Vibraphonist Peter Schlamb is one of the young musicians reshaping KC's jazz scene. His vibes jump with a contemporary sensibility — he's at home swinging a standard, weaving a bop line or commanding his own modern compositions. Trumpeter Hermon Mehari, whose range extends from Duke Ellington to hip-hop, and bassist Karl McComas-Reichl stand apart as two more emerging jazz voices. Drummer John Kizilarmut is new to town and making a name for himself. All three join Schlamb Saturday night for a glimpse at the future of KC jazz.
