A new day dawns on the Denton Jazz landscape – this blog is a dynamic, and comprehensive forum for understanding Jazz roots and history of Denton, upcoming performances at local and area venues and events, Denton musicians, their music and influence, and Jazz 101 for everyone interested to known more about this American treasure.
Kathy Edwards McFarland, writer and editor of Denton Jazz Chronicles, has years of training and experience in newspaper editing, writing and page design – and many happy years designing graphics, teaching art and painting.
“I’m not taking on this project alone,” said McFarland. “This is a community effort. Denton is known for its University of North Texas Jazz Studies Program, Jazz musicians, influences and community events. With the help of the many knowledgeable musicians, educators, civic leaders and business owners, we can bridge a communication gap, elevating Jazz appreciation in the city and beyond.”
