D’JAM Dallas Jazz Appreciation Month

March 31, 2012

Shared by Art & Seek – A service of KERA Public Media

The Smithsonian’s Jazz Appreciation Month begins April 1st and Dallas is getting ready.
It’s official! The Dallas jazz community is rallying together to celebrate the proud legacy and current trend-setters of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.
In true “Big-D” style, we’re calling  it D-JAM (Dallas Jazz Appreciation Month)
  • Denton takes its place among the Jazz Appreciation Month Jazz-Band-and-Artist Elite – from the local Live Jazz venues such as Banter Bistro, Dan’s Silver Leaf and Sweetwater Grill & Tavern to University of North Texas Jazz Studies Division http://jazz.unt.edu/calendar/2012-04.
And what better way to conclude Jazz Appreciation Month that the annual Denton Arts & Jazz Festival, April 27-29, and Quakertown Park – http://www.dentonjazzfest.com/
