In Toronto, The Rex Hotelis the only music venue that books jazz 7 days a week, 365 daysa year, and standing room only is not unusual. On May 30, thevenue celebrates JUNO-winning John MacLeod and The Rex HotelOrchestra. But before I elaborate on this triumphant story, let medraw your attention to a few other events which need your supportin order to triumph.Ben McConchieis one of JohnMacLeod’s pupils,a charismaticplayer who hasbeen “busy tryingto balance havingnewborn twins andgetting throughMaster’s Degree inJazz Performanceat U of T.”McConchie’sJohn will perform a spirited night of jazz-country fusion at theintimate Emmet Ray (924 College St.) on May 15.The WholeNote listings many concerts that takeplace beyond the GTA, but so far, not much jazz. Port Perry is anexception, where jazz vocalist and presenter Lynn McDonald booksThe Jester’s Court: May 8, “Mother’s Day with Alex Pangman”;May 15, Canadian Jazz Trio (Frank Wright, vibes; Gary Benson,guitar; Duncan Hopkins, bass); May 29, Jeff Taylor Trio (Jeff Taylor,violin; Chris Kettlewell, bass; Arch Rockefeller, guitar).If you know of another music venue beyond the GTA that hiresjazz musicians on a regular basis, we will happily include them inprint and online.
