The TD Toronto Jazz Festival Summer Concert Series is a weekly concert series, broadcasting live from the Long & McQuade Performance Hall at JAZZ.FM91, which kicks off our 35th anniversary celebrations, culminating in the 35th edition of the TD Toronto Jazz Festival in June, 2022. Presented by TD, the Summer Concert Series highlights 10 local acts who each bring their own unique perspective to the performance of jazz, and reflect a variety of the elements which have been part of the Festival over the past 35 years: from emerging artists and young lions to the best of the best; from traditional jazz to new sounds; from mentorship to community connections.
From Doc Cheatham to Houston Person, Jim Galloway to Martin Loomer, the Festival has always acknowledged its roots and the traditional sounds of early jazz. Past editions of the Festival featured an annual jazz parade and jazz cruises, highlighting the best in local trad talent with occasional guest visiting artists; our free, Loony and Toonie tunes concerts over the years showcased a variety of artists from at home and abroad who represented the history of jazz. Alex Pangman is one of Canada’s best practitioners of jazz from the 20’s and 30’s, keeping alive the spirit of traditional jazz which has been on display at the Festival each year.
