35th Montreal Jazz Festival June 26 - July 6

Montreal looks good this June/July. Just check out the program for the 35th International Jazz Festival. Literally something for everyone across the genres unlike most European festivals who, by and large, tend to concentrate on either the ancient or the modern with only a token representation of the wonderful music in between.
Not so in Montreal! They've got all the bases (or basses) covered.
Tickets go on sale today (April 26) at Noon EDT which is about 5pm in the UK.
To view the program or to book tickets click here. I suggest you wear a bib as salivating may take place.
Lance.
