Speak Up: How about a Kyser marker?
Thursday, October 12, 2017
In regards to a recent article about Thelonious Monk's 100th birthday celebration, I think this is a good acknowledgment for the contributions he gave to jazz.
What I would like to know is why the band leader, Kay Kyser, isn't recognized by the city with at least a historical marker.
He was far more popular as the band leader, well-known and made many movies over his career than Thelonious Monk.
