Prairie Village JazzFest artist spotlight: The Kessler/Embrey Conspiracy

The Kessler/Embrey Conspiracy will hit the stage at the Prairie VIllage JazzFest this Saturday.

Local fixtures Stanton Kessler and Danny Embrey will bring their unique blend of jazz to the stage at Harmon Park with their reassembled The Kessler/Embrey Conspiracy planned to start at set at 5:20 p.m. this Saturday.

Kessler, on trumpet, and Embrey, on guitar, team up with a bassist and drummer for this group — though the two are familiar co-performers on the Kansas City Jazz scene. They’re also part of the Sons of Brasil group that took the stage in 2016.

Tomorrow we’ll take a look at the fourth act that will take the stage Saturday, the Enormous Guitar Project, which also features Embrey.
