City Light Jazz Ensemble sits in and stands by a 1946 De Soto convertible in front of the Gem Theater with Ida McBeth leaning on the right front hood. Ahmad Alaadeen holds a soprano saxophone straight up in the air as he blows into it. A bass player sits up on top of the back seat holding a upright bass. Right side of this promotional material advertises the Jazz Lovers' Fall Crawl, October 18, 1988.
Ida McBeth, wearing a bejeweled pillbox hat, throws her head back and laughs as she stands on stage and holds a certificate which states "Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas. Kansas City Kansas Street Blues Festival. This certificate is awarded to Ida McBeth, first queen of blues for carrying on the blues heritage in Kansas City, Kansas. [Signed by] Joe Reardon, Mayor/CEO June 26, 2005" during the Kansas City, Kansas Street Blues Festival.
