Kansas City cartoonist, illustrator, barbecue-sauce impresario and frequent Kansas Alumni magazine contributor Charlie Podrebarac, ’81, is getting in the swing of things in anticipation of Saturday’s Jazz Border Showdown 2, the second-annual battle of the bands between KU’s Jazz Ensemble I, directed by Dan Gailey, and Mizzou’s Concert Jazz Band, directed by Arthur White.

And since Podrebarac brightened our day with this surprise contribution, we thought it might do the same for Jayhawk jazz lovers everywhere.

The big border gig will feature shows at 8 and 9:30 p.m. in The Blue Room at the American Jazz Museum, 1616 E. 18th St., in Kansas City, Missouri. Tickets are $10, and more information can be found at club.americanjazzmuseum.org.
