The Real Sound Of Surprise

The stage in Confederation Park is ready to go, so why wait?

Why, indeed. That's the thinking at the TD Canada Trust Ottawa International Jazz Festival, which is kicking off a day early with three free concerts on our mainstage, featuring:

Terence Blanchard Quartet – hot off his win last week as Trumpeter of the Year at the Jazz Journalists Association Jazz Awards.

Pavlo – terrific flamenco guitarist from Toronto.

Souljazz Orchestra – hometown favourites to start things off.

Nothing like three surprise concerts and a media blitz to get the adrenalin pumping. Stay tuned for posts from backstage until July 5.
