Toronto Jazz Festival – full calendar announced!

The 2009 Toronto Jazz Festival goes on starting Friday 26 June to Sunday 05 July 2009.

It’s a mamooth of a festival, incorporating hundreds of events in a few-dozen locations, including 3 church events on Sunday 28 June!

Here’s what I wouldn’t wanna miss:

  • Gary Burton quartet revisited (Monday 29 June at the Four Seasons theatre)
  • Al Di Meola World Sinfonia ’09 (Thursday 02 July on the main stage in front of the City Hall)
  • hot UK names The Heavy (Friday 26 June) and Alice Russell (Tuesday 30 June), for your dancing pleasure (both at the SUPERMARKET in Kensington Market, on Augusta)
  • the only appearance of any ECM artist in Toronto this year:  Enrico Rava & Stefano Bollani. The duo plays July 1st. A true different taste of jazz, European one!
  • the incredible North American appearance of seminal UK prog-rock band Van Der Graaf Generator (VdGG) – Opera House, Sat July 4th

Kudos to the organizers for the excellent website and calendar (browse it by artist to see the impressing list of names performing; or by venue if you like one particular place).

See you there!
