Representing the new and thriving young jazz sound will be "Dean Hill's Latest Project" (DLP) from Townview Magnet Center. This is a recipe for some great music and a one of a kind jazz experience for any live music lover. Music Director, Jason Davis says "Many question the relevance of a new venue and also the relevance of jazz music and this night of world class jazz in Dallas will answer that for those who attend and embrace the art."
The Show will cover early Deep Ellum Blues and jazz from all eras including references to how historic Texas born musicians have helped to shape jazz. This clearly can't be done in detail within a 2 hour concert however the respect for the Dallas Jazz Legacy will be represented well. The great traditions and sounds of jazz from the South Western United States have firm roots in Dallas and the Dallas Jazz Collective will highlight the great Texas soul jazz sound. All of the Musicians involved are active bandleaders of their own personal music ensembles outside of the specially crafted Jazz Collective. This concert is a rare opportunity to see some of the most prolific combinations of musical prowess that can be found anywhere in the world. From ages 17 to 71, the D.J.C. includes students, teacher and working professional musicians. It is a known fact that some of the best musicians on the planet live and work here in the DFW area and this night of Jazz at The City Performance Hall will be an exhibition of these talents.
The full weekend festivities begin on Thursday September 13, 2012 with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Many activities and presentations will be happening throughout the weekend. The Jazz Collective will be on stage Saturday night @ 8:00 PM. Mark your calendar for September 15, 2012. The Dallas City Performance Hall is located at 2100 Ross Ave. Dallas, Texas 75201.
