Jazzed Up in Montreal

By Linda Tancs

The 31st edition of the Montreal International Jazz Festival is underway at various venues throughout the city. Hailed by The New York Times as the king of Montreal’s assorted summer cultural festivals, this year’s event offers 3,000 artists from 30 countries giving more than 650 concerts, including 450 free outdoor performances. Performers include Bobby McFerrin, Herbie Hancock and the legendary Dave Brubeck, this year’s recipient of the Miles Davis award. Brubeck, the first to create a jazz album selling over one million copies, is credited with bringing jazz into mainstream music. Long live the king.
