Sylwester Ostrowski traveled from his native Poland to Kansas City in February 2020 to participate in a centennial celebration of Charlie Parker‘s life and music. During the visit, Ostrowski visited Parker’s childhood home, his grave, and other historical landmarks. He also sat in with some of Kansas City’s finest jazz musicians at several local venues. He got a taste of not only the Kansas City jazz scene but American life and culture as well. While visiting the US, Ostowski recorded Jammin’ With KC, an inspired view of jazz in Kansas City from Parker’s time to present day.
