The TD Toronto Jazz Festival Celebrates 25 Years

Image

Over the last 25 years, the Toronto Jazz Festival has brought some of the greatest names in music, to our great city . Roberta Flack, Miles Davis and Tony Bennett kicked off the inaugural Festival back in 1987, along with Stan Getz, Michael Brecker and John Scofield. In 1988, a then unknown pianist played at George’s Spaghetti House. What was her name? Diana Krall. At just 11 years old and perhaps one of the youngest performers ever, Derek Trucks made his first Festival appearance performing with Dr. Hector & the Groove Injectors in 1990 at Downtown Browne’s. Honouring the Louis Armstrong Centennial Celebrations in 2001, the Festival hosted a who’s who featuring Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Terence Blanchard and Nicholas Payton. Now that’s a lot of trumpets! Marsalis returned in 2004 and jammed into the wee hours across the street from the Mainstage, forcing a cancellation at the Montreal Jazz Festival the next night. Etta James played to a standing room only crowd in 2008, proving why she’s one of the great vocalists of our generation. A true genius, Oscar Peterson played one of his very last concerts with long time friend, Oliver Jones. Last year, the Festival threw its biggest free concert ever with a double bill that had Toronto on its feet dancing to Chaka Khan and Macy Gray.
