Montreal Jazz Festival 2011: Jon Day Review
It's so easy to be dazzled by the true and tested of the Montreal Jazz Festival. The Tony Bennetts, Sades, Princes and k.d. langs of every edition inspire admission sales with a simple name drop. But half the fun is stepping outside of the familiar to find that jaw-dropping, hidden gem on the verge of breaking through. And I think I found him.

Montreal Jazz Festival 2011: Legendary Tigerman Review
Some artists sing from the heart. Legendary Tigerman sings from the groin. At least sometimes. Once quoted saying that the world would be a different place if we all just lived in the nude two days a month, the one-man rock 'n' blues band from Lisbon, Portugal likes to keep things simple, pared down, raw, shifting from the topic of sex to love to nudity to strings-free, "I'm not your friend" one-night stands to love again as he negotiates his guitar with his bass drum, hi hat and suggestive kazoo blows.

Montreal Jazz Festival 2011 Newsflash: Prince. And More Prince.
Having had bestowed upon him a tank full of honors, awards and titles throughout his close to four decades long career, from being crowned the world's sexiest vegetarian by PETA to making Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Artists of All Time" list, the one and only Prince apparently contacted the Montreal Jazz Festival at the last minute and asked, out of the blue, if he could play two nights.

Montreal Jazz Festival 2011 Highlights (With Clips!)

Montreal Jazz Festival 2011: Diana Krall Times Three
Diana Krall. Three nights. Solo. Just her and her piano, a major game change for the B.C. native who's more accustomed to sharing the stage with dozens of musicians than going it alone.

Montreal Jazz Festival 2010 Artists We Want Back in 2011
The Montreal Jazz Festival breezed through the downtown core for the 31st time, and in 2010 it was an outrageously hot and humid edition filled with its usual quota of success stories. Some acts were good, others were great, and a handful or two reached the realm of outstanding.
