Coon-Sanders Nighthawks

A white hot jazz orchestra founded in Kansas City by drummer Carleton Coon and pianist Joe Sanders in 1919. In 1922 they began broadcasting live from the Muehlebach Hotel on clear channel radio station WDAF between 11:30 pm and 1:00 am across the U.S., becoming the first jazz group from the region to achieve National fame. By 1924 the band moved to Chicago where their immense success would initiated a prosperous recording career on the Victor label.
