After an illustrious 23 year career at Canada’s jazz station, Jaymz Bee, beloved host of Jazz in the City and Jazz Gone Wild, signs off the air at JAZZ.FM91 to pursue his latest creative venture in filmmaking.

“Jaymz Bee has been an integral member of our JAZZ.FM91 team,” said Dana Wigle, JAZZ.FM91 General Manager in a statement, “Jaymz’s commitment to supporting artists combined with his energy and passion for entertaining fostered the growth of many of our programs over the years from the curation of our Jazz Lives concerts, local and international Jazz Safaris and the development and nurturing of the beloved program, Jazz In The City.  Jaymz is family and we can’t wait to see what he does next.”

Jaymz joined JAZZ.FM91 back in 2002, but his radio career started in the late 1990s hosting shows for NEWSTALK 1010 and AM 640. Outside of radio, Jaymz is a true Renaissance man, a jack-of-all-trades. He has done everything under the sun as a musician, writer, emcee, producer, bandleader, mentor and ambassador for Toronto’s jazz community.

Most recently, Jaymz embarked on a new career in filmmaking and has received international recognition at various festivals around the world such as Cannes, Paris, London, Hollywood and Tokyo. Last year, he directed three short films Wild Music, Beat Speak, and Artists & Aliens. Jaymz is currently at work on a TV pilot and his first feature film, Magicland, is currently in production.

JAZZ.FM91 will pay tribute to Jaymz Bee with a special finale episode of Jazz in the City on Thursday, July 25. Additionally, the upcoming sold-out One-Stop Vocal Jazz Safari on July 11 at Lula Lounge will also pay tribute to the one-of-a-kind personality.
