The Big Deal: Fort Worth Public Library 3rd Thursday Jazz Concert Featuring Paul Unger

by Felix Kalvesmaki 3 Jul 2019 1:30 AM

This year marks the 10th anniversary of 3rd Thursday Jazz presented by the Fort Worth Public Library. To celebrate, FWPL is hosting dozens of programs and performances throughout the city for adults and children.

The 3rd Thursday Jazz concert on July 18 at the Fort Worth Central Branch Library will feature bassist Paul Unger. Unger, Dennis Durick, Dave Monsch and Pete Clagett will pay tribute to Fort Worth native Ornette Coleman by playing songs from his landmark recording, The Shape Of Jazz To Come, as well as music from his later recordings.

The 3rd Thursday Jazz concerts are always free. However, if you win this Big Deal your 3rd Thursday Jazz experience on July 18th will include a pre-show meet & greet, four swag bags, four front-row reserved lounge seating for the show, plus a $50 gift certificate to Del Frisco’s Grille in Sundance Square.
