DENTON'S FAMOUS JAZZ FESTIVAL - April 23-25, 2011

Denton, Texas, about 40 miles north of Dallas, has long been considered the king of jazz music education.  The University of North Texas is there, and it's the daddy of the famous One O'clock Lab Band that has played for kings, queens, presidents, and for regular people like you and me.

Chick Corea ===>>

I suppose because of the Lab Band's more than 70 years of influence on the city, the citizens of Denton themselves are rabid jazz aficionados.  And UNT treasures its jazz programs and bands probably more than other colleges and universities treasure their school's athletic prowess.

In fact, the UNT Jazz Music Department greatly influenced my personal piano playing style, the result of its most famous jazz professor, Dr. Leon Breeden.

The annual Denton Jazz Festival, which is held in Quakertown Park on McKinney Street in downtown Denton, will be held this year, April 23-25th.  About 2,500 musicians will play.

The star attraction this year is Chick Corea and his group.  Click here for more details. DENTON JAZZ FESTIVAL
