Lab 2011: [UNT] One O’Clock Jazz Band

Lab 2011 , the CD from the University of North Texas One O’Clock Lab Band is now available!

For those unfamiliar with the One O’Clock Lab Band,  they’re the top-level jazz band from the University of North Texas (UNT)  Division of Jazz Studies. The University of North Texas College of Music is one of the largest music schools in the country, and their rich legacy on jazz and jazz studies is world-renowned.   The One O’Clock Lab Band has received six Grammy nominations over the years, including their recent nomination in 2010 for their CD Lab 2009.

One O’Clock Lab Band @ TMEA

Hopefully all of you jazzers out there @ the TMEA Convention made it to the University of North Texas One O’Clock Lab Band concert that was held last night at the Lila Cockrell Theatre. If not, however, all is not lost. Pender’s is one of the primary distributors of UNT’s Lab Band recordings.

UNT’s premier jazz ensemble, the One O’Clock Lab band, was nominated for a Grammy (Best Large Jazz Ensemble) in 2009 for their CD, Lab 2009; their conductor, Steve Wiest, was also nominated that year for his composition, Ice-Nine (Best Instrumental Composition), which is recorded on the same CD.

The UNT College of Music, their Jazz Studies Program (the first of its kind in the nation), and the Lab Band traditions have a great history in North Texas, as well as across the country. If you missed the performance at TMEA, maybe you can catch one later in the spring.
