Album Description

The Christopher Burnett “Drum Room” Quartet was a featured performer on the First Saturdays of the month beginning shortly after the newly renovated hotel and jazz venue opened at 14th and Baltimore in downtown Kansas City. I played these dates with a core group of various artists like Will Matthews, James Ward, Roger Wilder, William Crain, Dr. Mike Pagan, Michael Shanks, Jeff Harshbarger, Craig Aiken, and Brandon Draper, among several other top professional players on the scene. Our two-year residency was during the years 2006 and 2007. We played “standards” that I liked but were not the typical tunes everyone played at the jam sessions in town. This was my first steady gig as a leader on the Kansas City jazz scene. These seven tracks were recorded live direct to digital by long-time friend Willie Thornton on one of those Saturday evenings in 2007. Thornton brought his professional remote studio out several times and set it up in the venue. He then sent me the audio masters and those are what make up “The Standards, Vol. 2.” The Drum Room is the only historically significant Kansas City jazz venue that is actually still located in its original place within the famous (Hilton) President Hotel but as of this writing, it no longer schedules live jazz music.
