Experience the best of the Toronto jazz scene as we take you as our personal guest on the ‘magic bus’ to visit four or five jazz venues in just one night. Your starting point is a central club or restaurant, then as a small group you’ll travel around town to take in some of the city’s hottest jazz performers before heading back to your first venue at the end of the night.

Current CD Incentive
Each fundraising campaign we feature a new CD from one of our favourite artists.
Currently we are offering Indigo by Kandace Springs.
Indigo is a 13-track album of originals and choice covers that showcases the full breadth of Springs’s artistry, from smoldering R&B (Piece of Me) to gorgeous jazz ballads (Unsophisticated, featuring Roy Hargrove), to the pop songcraft of Breakdown and Don’t Need the Real Thing.
For Springs, it boils down to a question that connects past to present: “What would Nina Simone do if she had the technology of today? You could never put Nina in a box — she would do a blues song followed by a classical piece, a jazz standard and then a Beatles cover. This LP took a lot of inspiration from that — it’s a mix of everything that I am.” Indigo offers a fairly plausible answer to that impossible query: songs that swirl classical composition with quiet-storm cool, jazz poise with hip-hop swing, tropical warmth with soulful depth, and earthen groove with airy psych.
