Worst Festival Ever!

Just when I think the local jazz festival can’t get any worse, any farther from their mandate or be any less competent, they lower the bar. Last year it was the famous ‘pay musicians in exposure’ debacle that the Musicians… Continue Reading →

Jakob Bro in Winnipeg

The Headliner It is not too often that a ECM recording artist come to the ‘Peg let alone starts off their tour but this night had Jakob Bro in a trio format. The show was okay. He’s a ‘tones’ guy… Continue Reading →

NoJazz Winnipeg 2018 Festival

Just in case you don’t want to read the whole article: Still has hardly any Jazz. Still has hardly any International or out of town Jazz. Still loses money while claiming pop acts pay for the jazz. Still has a… Continue Reading →

Come and Get Your Steaming Pile Of Jazz Fest

2012 Jazz Fest AfterMATH

Well the Fest is over with a whimper. The best and (to my knowledge) the only sold out/non local JAZZ show was Vijay Iyer. At least the early set was sold out I don’t know if the second set was… Continue Reading →
