It is theMontreal International Jazz Festival that is here now with horns blaring, pianos declaring and sexy throaty singers making our hearts melt. At least a dozen stages outdoors setup in the entertainment district…minutes from cobblestone streets of Old Montreal, China Town and the Old Port. Ten marvelous days and nights of singing, dancing, swaying and slow dancing too.

The first summer I attended, I saw Vic Vogel jamming for fun with his buddies at an offbeat bar. There are a few jazz bars like that I’ve enjoyed in Toronto…just jamming…musicians performing for the love the art.
The Montreal Jazz festival is famous internationally. Lucky you. Would love to see it.
Have not been in a while with my late shifts…but took time off next week…hope to see a few shows.
Sorry we are missing this!
