You’re sure to hit the right note with the full gamut of jazz sounds on the menu during the annual TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival. This year's festival will feature great acts like Dianne Reeves, Billy Childs Quartet and the Tierney Sutton Band.
Free jazz under the skies at Sir Winston Churchill Square defines a lazy summer afternoon. Big name jazz makes waves in big name venues like the Winspear Centre and the Old Strathcona Performing Arts Centre, and there’s an intimate feel to gigs jamming in cafés, jazz clubs and wine bars around town. Edmonton has a long history of dedication to this musical genre and key to their success is the Edmonton Jazz Orchestra and Edmonton-based musicians who compose, arrange and perform big band jazz.
It’s mellow, it’s lively and it’s a great time to listen to sax, silky voices – all that jazz.
