Even though the 2006 Cool Concert Tour isn't quite over yet (I'm very much looking forward to Dave Holland in San Antonio in September), I'm already pretty psyched about next year's edition. I received a brochure in the mail today from Da Camera of Houston (the series to which we almost went to see Directions in Music a year ago, until we turned it into a combo "field trip" to Ft. Worth instead), and their '06-'07 season looks pretty promising. Here's a sampler:
Saturday, October 28: Dianne Reeves Trio
Saturday, March 3: Chris Potter's Underground Quartet
Saturday, March 17: SFJAZZ Collective (featuring Joshua Redman, Bobby Hutcherson, Nicholas Payton, and others)
Needless to say, this could bring about some righteous roadtrips, and if any of the above decided to include a Dallas stint while they were in the state...hey, all the better.
One more way to spare the Tomato: In a recent comment to Friday's post, I got word of one more site dedicated to the preservation of Denton's historic Fry St. area; SaveFryStreet.com.
