I believe it is the Dean of the Arts School there; he is usually in attendance at the jazz concerts and appears to be a real fan, albeit with pretty conservative tastes.

They also have an interesting program of classical concerts, and tickets are pretty cheap for a "senior citizen" which sadly they define as anyone age 55 or over.

I see that Kelley Durbin is on staff there as well. He's a for-real guy too.

Time for my annual trip to the United States.  Historically - 33 years - it's been to the United Nations headquarters "near" New York City.  So why am I posting here?  This year, I'm going to...Richardson, TX (and later to Cincinnati).  It's going to be a great change from Manhattan.  Ahem.   I won't have a car, though I'm near a light rail stop at Galatyn Park Station, and I will be loading the Lyft app to my mobile.  The other little bummer is that I'm working Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Any suggestions for my annual chance to, like, hear live jazz? 

I poked around and found this place: https://www.sohofooddrinksandjazz.com/music-calendar  ("Ron Jones brings you classic solo saxophone all night".   Somehow, I'm not picturing five hours of "For Alto".)

This place http://www.balconyclub.com/ seems to be dark during my days.

This place https://kitchencafedallas.com/ looks nice, as a place, though I can't say the music offered during my days (pop vocals?) appeals much.  And Dallas is pretty far.  So, hey, if I'm SOL, I can live with that, but any suggestions appreciated.  September 22nd - October 3rd (again, minus Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights).  Thanks.

The Balcony Club  has Jonathan Fisher with guest Shelley Carrol on Sunday nights. I would say that is your best jazz selection in your time frame.

The Kitchen Cafe is a very pleasant listening room. Good sound. The food is pretty good. I like the place. It is very vocals oriented--sometimes jazz and sometimes pop oriented. I'm not familiar with any of the artists currently scheduled there for the dates you mention. I've seen some good stuff there--Marvin Stamm, Pete Christlieb, Eddie Gomez Trio, Shelley Carrol, Quamon Fowler. But nothing like that is currently scheduled there.

The other live music venue I go to in North Dallas is Six Springs Tavern-a dive bar/concert venue in a run down strip mall. No jazz there but occasionally some pretty good Dallas blues. E.J. Matthews is there September 27.

The Gumbo Kings are a good band in the "neo-New Orleans" bag. Last time I heard them, they were fun.

But Shelley is the guy you don't want to miss if you can keep from it. That's the real deal right there.

Thanks for the tips.  Is the Jonathan Fisher with guest Shelley Carrol  a standing/regular Sunday gig?  I ask just because the calendar for the Balcony Club ends September 19th, then picks up again mid-October.  Maybe those are just the non-"standing" shows.  Maybe in a couple of days, all will be revealed.  Again, thanks.

The Jonathan Fisher/Shelley Carrol Sunday night at the Balcony Club engagement is a standing/regular engagement.

The calendar on their website is not functioning properly, it would appear.

The Jazz Bicycle Tour aka JBT is the placekeeping project co-directed by Tammy Gomez--avid bicyclist and founder of Sound Culture--and Laney Yarber--jazz aficionado and founder of Pedestrian Dance.

The Jazz Bicycle Tour is a community bicycle ride through the Historic Southside and downtown Fort Worth, stopping briefly at locations along the way that hold jazz history and lore.

The JBT will kick off at the Ella Mae Shamblee Public Library, where a first-time exhibit of jazz drummer Ronald Shannon Jackson artifacts and memorabilia will be unveiled. Another highlight will be a live musical performance by music curator and jazz heritage musician Rachella Parks-Washington—at the Scat Jazz Lounge in downtown FW.

The JBT is on Saturday, October 19th—from 3-6pm. (It’s the same day as Arts Goggle, so plan your day of fun accordingly!)

This afternoon event will be family-friendly and open to both bicyclists and non-bicyclists. (People in cars can meet us at the Shamblee Public Library, the Scat Jazz Lounge, or at Record Town.)

Refreshment pit stops along the way!
A slow-rollin' pace, with no drops.
Recommended for ages 15 and up.
Pick up knowledge and a "passport stamp" at every stop!

Though there will be no admission fee to participate, $ donations will be gratefully accepted. For those who do not own a bicycle, the folks at Fort Worth Bike Sharing have kindly offered to check out bikes free of charge to JBT participants.

    UNT Lyceum
    Denton, Texas 76201

    Free for UNT Students; $5 UNT student guest ticket (limit 1)
    $5 for UNT Staff / Faculty /Alumni
    $10 for General Public"

    The UNT Fine Arts Series presents Multi-instrumentalist and composer Tyshawn Sorey who is celebrated for his incomparable virtuosity, effortless mastery and memorization of highly complex scores, and an extraordinary ability to blend composition and improvisation in his work. The New York Times has praised Sorey for his instrumental facility and aplomb, “he plays not only with gale-force physicality, but also a sense of scale and equipoise”; The Wall Street Journal notes Sorey is, “a composer of radical and seemingly boundless ideas.” The New Yorker recently noted that Sorey is “among the most formidable denizens of the in-between zone…An extraordinary talent who can see across the entire musical landscape.”

    Sorey has released seven critically acclaimed recordings that feature his work as a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and conceptualist. His latest, Pillars (Firehouse 12 Records, 2018), has been praised by Rolling Stone as “an immersive soundworld… sprawling, mysterious… thrilling” and has been named as one of BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction 2018 albums of the year.

    He will be accompanied by Sasha Berliner (Vibes), Morgan Guerin (Saxophone, EWI), Lex Korten (Piano), & Nick Dunston (Bass).

Interesting...this is the same space in which Sam Rivers played. correct?

Gonna try to make this one, Sorey's music is slowly but surely working its way on me. Hearing it live should be a treat.

although, Sorey's latest is his excellent duet album w/Marilyn Crispell...he should update his press kit!

I don't know; I'm not familiar with this performance space.

I've seen him a few times as a sideman--with Vijay Iyer, with Roscoe Mitchell and with George Lewis. Excellent percussionist.

I would like to attend, but Monday in Denton at 7:30 might be tough.

Yeah, day/time/travel...not necessarily the friendliest combination.

The Lyceum used to be a nice, small auditorium in the Student Union building. Besides, Sam Rivers, that's also where the AEC played. But I have no idea what's what there now, there's been a lot of remodeling/etc. The last two times I went to Denton for a concert, they were in some standalone concert hall building (is it called Meyerson?), and the time before that, somewhere in Lab Band Hall, I think.

Not surprisingly, this concert is NOT being sponsored by anything related to the Lab Band or School Of Music (neither was the AEC gig, that was sponsored by the Black Student Union). It's part of the UNT Fine Arts series, and it looks like they are presenting quite the array of contemporary performers/presenters: https://studentaffairs.unt.edu/fine-arts-series

Winspear  (same name as the Dallas Arts District Opera House) is the standalone concert hall at UNT, just off I-35, that I've been to a couple of times.

The One O'clock Lab Band is not my cup of tea. Honestly, I can't stand the band.

I didn't see (or know about that I recall) Sam Rivers or the AEC playing in Denton. More missed opportunities and regrets!

But I did see the AEC at the Caravan of Dreams; plus the Sam Rivers Trio at Sweet Basil, and Sam Rivers a couple of times with Dizzy, so I'm going to be okay.

The One O'clock Lab Band is not my cup of tea. Honestly, I can't stand the band.

Winspear, year, that's the name. A little further north and you can hit Winstar!

The only reason I've been to hear the 1:00 play is because of guests (Billy Harper + The Cookers, which was excellent, and then Jimmy Heath, which was kinda sad). The there was the afternoon concert where Ryan Truesdell was the guest and they just played Gil Evans charts. That's one thing that band can do well, play charts. And those charts are worth hearing live, no matter who plays them. Plus they had a tuba player recruited just for that gig who was outstanding. He made me think of Harry Carney, actually, so anchoring was he.
