Seven months, many meetings, so many emails, much brainstorming, much coffee (duh), phone calls, faxes, scotch (not gonna lie…), hundreds of submissions, agreeing to agree, agreeing to disagree, good news, bad news, great news…and then, finally, we reveal the lineup to the 2015 TD Toronto Jazz Festival.
Tune in to JAZZ.FM91 this Tuesday, April 14 starting at 2 pm as we announce the who, what, when and where of this year's Festival. (The why and how, well, that will require drinks and maybe even dinner.) As usual, it's been a bit of a roller coaster ride. The usual challenge of June's incredibly busy cultural calendar has been made more difficult this year by factors including a weak Canadian dollar and one-time events such as the Pan Am Games - talent (i.e. artists), sponsorships and hotel rooms have all been a little more difficult to find. However, thanks to outstanding support from sources private and public, we're set to unveil a fantastic list of shows on Tuesday, with more surprises sure to come in the weeks ahead.
So - join us for the celebration this Tuesday at 2 pm: tune in to 91.1 FM, listen online at jazz.fm or follow us on Twitter and Facebook. Some of the biggest names in jazz are coming to town this June - and they'll be here before you know it.
