jazzy:

  • Want to talk to a Big Band about jazz?  Each summer, North York Arts has presented “Summer Serenades”, where Big Bands would play in Mel Lastman Square on Sunday evenings.

    This year that isn’t possible, so they are doing another program called, “Big Band Exchange”. The idea is that the Big Bands who would normally play, will host a kind of online show, where they play recordings of their favourite jazz songs, and talk about memories or anecdotes they have.

    Part of the program is that they would like to speak with people in the GTA community by phone who have an interest in jazz (not live on the show, but as they plan the show) to talk about their favourite songs and memories too. 

    So if you’re interested…The band members would give a call (certain times can be arranged…) and it would be probably a relaxed 15-20 minute conversation.
