“Jazz, hip-hop, alt-rock — when the Kansas City band Matt Cook Collective formed, each drew from a different genre. Yet it all worked.
“Every band member comes from a completely different musical upbringing. From indie to gypsy jazz to folk to hip-hop all the way to classic rock, our group’s members cover so many genres,” Cook says.
While the group classifies its music as fusion, you never know what route a member will take it at shows, with the latest set for 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18, at Magoon’s, 632 S. Eighth St.“
