Denton Jazz this week – Redux

March 13, 2012

UNT Jazz bands at Banter Bistro.

This version of Live Denton Jazz for March 13 – 20, 2012 was revised – with additions. So all you cats and kittens, read on …

The 35 Denton music festival and the local band and artists who filled in daytime slots at many Denton venues have silenced their amps, holstered their axes and cooled their vocal chords … most listeners and enthusiasts will no doubt need the entire Spring Break week to recuperate.

But local live Jazz continues this week at many locations … no wristbands needed.
