The University of North Texas’ One O’clock Lab Band presents “Grammy Jazz,” selections from nominated works, as part of a jazz concert Thursday night at the Dallas City Performance Hall.

Steve Wiest directs UNT’s premiere jazz ensemble, which has been nominated for six Grammys over the years.

Thursday’s show is a joint concert with the Sammons Jazz Ensemble, from the Sammons Center for the Arts. The group, directed by Arlington Jones, will present “Sammons Jazz Plays Motown” — popular Motown classics transformed into modern-day jazz standards.

The concert is part of the Dallas Jazz Appreciation Month, or D’JAM, part of the national effort founded by the Smithsonian to promote jazz as a unique American art form in April of every year.

The concert starts at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Dallas City Performance Hall, 2520 Flora St. in the Dallas Arts District. Tickets cost $10 to $40 and are available online at
