    As Canadians we have always been blessed with incredible music makers.

    In particular, our strong and vibrant history with jazz is rich with names like Oscar Peterson, Ed Bickert, Peter Appleyard, Maynard Ferguson and Rob McConnell. Our influences have not only been from America and Europe, but it also lies within the spirit of this countries robust immigration story.

    Today, Diana Krall, Robi Botos, Larnell Lewis, BADBADNOTGOOD and Darcy James Argue are grabbing attention and awards worldwide and jazz venues, festivals and JAZZ.FM91 continues to thrive with local talent that inspire, create and mark time with a music that is our own. Jazz lives and breathes in Canada.

    At JAZZ.FM91, we’re proud to play a part in all of it, from supporting the best in Canadian jazz in our concerts, on our airwaves, with our music education, outreach and by just being its number one fan. Let’s face it, we don’t play Canadian music because we have to, we play it because we love to and it’s an intrinsic part of who we are.

    With Canada’s 150 celebrations upon us, we want you to nominate your favourite Canadian jazz or jazz-influenced musicians and a list of 25 of those greats will be generated from all of those entries.

    Then beginning Monday, May 29th, and every weekday until June 30th, we’ll play back one of those musicians in a special spotlight! On July 1st, Canada day, we’ll playback all 25 in a row and reveal the number one Canadian jazz musician of all time, as chosen by you!
