I am totally confused by conduct of TD Downtown Jazz festival of late. I have to admit I did not attend any of the sleepy jazz events with the exception of Herby Handcock. Event then, most players seem to conform to the wishes of the ignorant and play none eventful music containing no melodies or moments of excitement?
Rock, Blues Bars owners who continuously shun the likes of Jazz each year, are all a glow during the TD Downtown Jazz festival?
However, during all other music events in T.O., Jazz is nowhere to be found or mentioned?
What is the meaning of jazz anyway?
