We're a Toronto couple who fell in love in 1991 on Queen St, with jazz in the background ... first at the Rex and then the Montreal Bistro, The Senator, the Pilot ... and many more in between and since.
Our intention with this listing site (launched Feb 2013) is to provide on 'one' page the clubs with the jazz we most love, and ... inspire fans to support venues that provide jazz so players can keep working at what they love.
Our Listings represent, for the most part, our specific proclivity to "straight ahead" jazz and the young turks and seasoned veterans of this city who play it. Through "Other Jazz Links" we'll also attempt to regularly provide links to Trad & alternative jazz, blues venues, blogs, streams and out-of-town clubs. We welcome your suggestions!
We feel that sharing our own "amateur" audio and video, along with other video contributions, is an opportunity to highlight the great TO music available, with the hope we'll tempt you to go to the clubs and support live Jazz. Please don't hesitate to share video-link suggestions and, when inclined, any choice photographs you may have. We'd gladly give credit to any contributors whose life is made better by our and your choice of Jazz.
See you in the clubs!
Natasha and Stan
