Three great jazz trios and quartets from across the country came together for an event called Urban Jazz Landscape at the Glenn Gould. I was asked to host and enjoyed the music. It was curated by the folks the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal, Toronto Jazz Festival, and Vancouver International Jazz Festival, and featured groups from each city: Kyle Brenders Quartet, Parc X Trio, and the Gordon Grdina Trio.
Usually during my job the musicians I meet fall into the singer-songwriter/adult alternative bracket. It was a nice change to meet equally talented artists in a different genre.
