Thomas Francis is one of Toronto’s leading pianists, well-known for his extensive background in jazz and soul-based musics. He has performed and recorded with an impressive cross-section of Canadian musicians spanning everything from jazz and country to soul and disco.

Recorded at Poetry Jazz Café which, since 2010, has showcased local, Canadian and international artists performing music and spoken word with an emphasis on the history of these art forms and their roots in Black culture. Poetry is housed in Toronto’s incredible Kensington Market, whose roots go back to the 18th century, and which today is a richly multicultural downtown neighbourhood known for its independent spirit, colourful shop-fronts, charismatic locals, family-friendly events, and over 240 unique and eclectic businesses.

Neighbourhood ambassador Richard Underhill takes us on a tour of Kensington Market:
