About ARC


“As a non-pop music, jazz typically rewards the self-starter. And just as the Internet has put the power of the press into the fingers of the individual, so too does it allow independent musicians to effectively market themselves and maintain professional relations using social networking sites as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. The Leavenworth, Kan.-based Artist(s) Recording Collective uses such technology as its foundation.” ~Yoshi Kato, Downbeat

“Why do brand marketing collectives work? The main reason is aggregation. A certain level of aggregation is necessary to cut through the clutter of the long tail online. By associating with a collective of powerful brands you can aggregate the quality and therefore create an exponentially more powerful collective brand that essentially creates a bump in the long tail. This bump helps your work cut through the clutter. As the collective gains market share in its given niche, so does each individual member’s work. Jazz’s First Brand Marketing Collective is the Artists Recording Collective (ARC)” ~B.J. Jansen, All About Jazz

About the Blue Room


Named after the famed 1930s Street Hotel club in the Historic 18th & Vine Jazz District, the Blue Room simultaneously honors the past and showcases the present names in jazz.

A multifaceted exhibit highlighting the countless musicians who crafted “Kansas City jazz,” a sound known all over the world, the Blue Room also provides a distinctive platform to present dynamic performances from the best local and national jazz talent in an intimate setting.

Come down, bring your instrument and sit in at the weekly Blue Monday Jam – or just take in the sounds of one of Kansas City’s best jam sessions.

Big bands typically perform the last Monday of each month, and our Latin Jazz/Salsa series gets shakin’ on the last Thursday of each month (except where otherwise noted on the calendar).

Catch Cumulus Radio’s Magic 107.3 FM broadcasts live at Indigo Hour in the Blue Room.

At the Blue Room, upcoming bands, seasoned veterans of the local jazz scene, national talent and internationally renowned jazz artists share the spotlight.
