In the 1920s to 1940s, the American Federation of Musicians Local 627 made the building in 1823 Highland Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri their second home. It was built in 1904, and was immortalized in the popular song 627 Stomp. This building is the very structure people today know as the Mutual Musicians? Foundation Building.

This place has been the very venue for the development of the Kansas City jazz style, being the comfortable headquarters of different music artists from the area. Their membership included prominent musicians like Julia Lee, Count Basie, Lester Young, Herschel Evans, Charlie Parker, Baby Lovett, Bennie Motten, and Dick Wilson just to name a few.

In 1981, the Mutual Musicians? Foundation Building was designated to be a National Historic Landmark.
