When I saw that the University of North Texas was playing in tonight’s Sun Belt Conference final for the auto-bid to the NCAA tournament, I immediately remembered the UNT One O’Clock Lab Band. UNT has one of the premiere jazz education programs in the U.S., and their student bands are ranked in ability based on what lab session the musicians attend. The One O’Clock session is the top chair.
The band releases an annual CD of their best tunes, and I thought it would be great if the University could be talked into bringing them along to generate interest in the team and the band and the school.
