RESOLUTION NO. 001545

 

Recognizing and congratulating Ahmad Alaadeen, a statewide winner of the 2000 Governors Humanities Award.

 

WHEREAS, Ahmad Alaadeen is a master performer of jazz saxophone, but also an exemplary teacher and mentor for aspiring jazz musicians and a most deserving winner of the 2000 Governors Humanities Awards presented by the Missouri Humanities Council; and

 

WHEREAS, Alaadeen is known as an exacting musician and an extremely fair band leader and co-worker with respect for Kansas City jazz history, and, in particular, the role played by Black musicians in a music form that swept the nation and world, the Kansas City swing; and

 

WHEREAS, at a time in his life where a musician might be entirely self-focused or in retirement, Alaadeens energy goes to performing in schools and bringing musicians up by working with them in his band, giving them hands-on professional experience; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

That the Mayor and Council hereby congratulate Ahmad Alaadeen for his contributions to Kansas City jazz and being a statewide winner of the 2000 Governors Humanities Award; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to Ahmad Alaadeen in token of the appreciation of the Mayor and Council for his contributions to Kansas City jazz and as a mentor for aspiring jazz musicians.
