    This year, the 27th annual jazzfest, is going to be crazy. There's so many jazz legends this year. Well I'm going to the McCoy Tyner Septet and the Kennny Garrett Quartet. There goes 100 bucks. They're both on July 2nd, it's going to be an intense day of jazz!

    Tickets go on sale this Saturday.:D

    I attended the MJF for the first time last year. Loved it. Love Montreal too... :)

    My favorite acts? The Indian percussion trio. And the acid jazz combo that played at Club Soda at midnight that night. Very hip... :cool:

    Impressive line up. Not sure if I'll be in town this summer. Interesting to see David Clayton Thomas on the bill. I saw him at The Moustache around 1978/79.

    Anyone out there remember The Moustache, Edgewater, The Maples Inn, Esquire Show Bar?

    Old man asking the question.:(

    They were the big rooms in Montreal in the late 70's early 80's. They brought bands in for 5 nights a week. The Moustache was a cross the street from the old Forum, on Closse. Lots of band doing the east coast USA circuit came to Montreal back then. The Maples Inn was on Lakeshore blvd in Pointe Claire. It was a great venue for local bands. It mysteriously burned down the day after it closed.

    The Esquire Show bar saw a lot of big names go in there like the Isley Brothers. It closed for along time and then reopened in the late 70;s for a while, predominantly for jazz.

    Actually, there's a good possibility that I will get to meet Kenny Garrett after the show. And maybe go somewhere with him, with my friends. Because my friend's music teacher's sister is married to Kenny Garrett.

    That's a nice line up. I'll be seeing McCoy Tyner Trio later this month at the Atlanta Jazz Festival... for free.
