SAMMONS JAZZ ARTISTIC DIRECTOR’S CONCERT
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Sammons Jazz, Arlington Jones & The Brethren honor past Sammons Jazz artistic directors Vicho Vicencio (1989-1996), Roger Boykin (1996-1999), and James Gilyard (1999-2011) and famed visual artist Bart Forbes to mark the release of the “Sammons Jazz Directors Cut” CD/DVD. The recording includes music from the special Sammons Jazz concert performed in December 2017 plus interviews with the artistic directors and others who created and sustained North Texas’ premier jazz series.
