Each year since 2013, the organizers of Dallas Jazz Appreciation Month, who represent organizations and institutions that support and present jazz year-round in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, recognize important figures in the jazz community with the Jazz Legend Awards.
Among this years winners are UNT Jazz Studies Faculty members Jennifer Barnes (Jazz Educator) and Rodney Booth (Jazz Artist), and Instrumental Studies adjunct instructor and Jazz Studies alumnus Stockton Helbing (Jazz Innovator). They were recognized on April 13, 2019 at the DJAM Open House at the Moody Performance Hall in Dallas. Jennifer Barnes was on tour with the Jazz Singers that day. Photos by Bart Marantz.
