It beganin Toronto’s historicDistillery District in2006 and has recentlyrelocated outside ofToronto proper toneighbouring regions ofPeel and beyond. Whythe migration?“Part of the mandateof the organization isto build new audiencesfor jazz and to exposeaudiences to musiciansthey may not have theBobby McFerrin.opportunity to see or hear. With changes underway at the Distillery,particularly construction that was affecting our outdoor space, wedecided it was time to find new communities to build our globalvillage. Last year, we took the Festival north and the Art of JazzGlobal Jazz Village took place in Maynooth. We are once againpresenting the Art of Jazz Global Jazz Village in Maynooth andneighbouring Bancroft August 17–21, 2011. We further expandedour Festival season to include the Brampton Global Jazz and BluesFestival August 11–14, 2011 … Our focus and mandate remain thesame — each is a celebration of the art form of jazz and has deeproots in education. Local artists along with top musicians fromaround the world come together to perform in intimate venues. Wecreate a relaxed, casual and welcoming atmosphere that allows audiencesand musicians to mix, mingle and learn from one another.”Why Brampton?“The City of Brampton approached the Art of Jazz about bringinga jazz festival to their city. They have generously sponsored theFestival and provided unprecedented support behind the scenes.We have access to the beautiful Rose Theatre, Gage Park, GardenSquare and more — all located in downtown Brampton and in closewalking distance so that we can maintain the feeling of a communitythroughout the weekend. Brampton is the second fastest growing and11th largest city in Canada with over 511,000 people from more than175 distinct ethnic backgrounds. It is an ideal place to build a jazzfestival, build jazz audiences and grow a vibrant jazz community.”Thank you to all of you who continue to support live music.Whether you’re paying with credit, cash or with your attention, youmake a world of difference.

Free Connections,Good VibrationsETCETERA!ORI DAGANSunshine, laughter and in some cases, concerts: the bestthings in life are free. In light of this, and inspired by an emailfrom Cheryl Drake, senior church administrator at Humber ValleyUnited Church, we hereby inaugurate a brand new category in TheETCeteras. Looking to find a new home for a well-loved recordcollection? A used instrument case? Or as in the case of HumberValley, 26 rust-coloured gowns and 18 cream collars? If you arelooking to give away these goods without remuneration, we arehappy to list these and other items at no charge in The ETCeteras’brand new Giveaways section.Speaking of new, a holistic healing clinic has recently introducedlive music two days a week when booking massage therapy oracupuncture services. “It is my long held view that music is morethan entertainment,” says Marie Graff, proprietor of BodyOneRegistered Massage Therapy Clinic. “With sound healing makingits way into the discussion on energy medicine and many interestingexperiments on that front, we have decided to bring musicians intoto the clinic to play soothing music. Live music can make a realdifference on your whole neuro-physical being, effectively activatingevery cell in your body with the imprint of melodic principles.” Seethe Announcements section for details.Screenings of cinematic musical classics are abundant thissummer with a rhyming pair of weekly screenings at Yonge-Dundas(“Dancing in the Dark”) and David Pecaut (“TIFF in the Park”)Squares. Films range from such old-school staples as The Wizardof Oz and The Sound of Music to more thoroughly modern fare likeThe Muppet Movie, Hair and Moulin Rouge. It will be interestingto see how the weather holds up (particularly for the screening ofSingin’ in the Rain).In my column this month (see previous page) you can read allabout Art of Jazz’s Brampton Global Jazz and Blues Festival andBobby McFerrin’s concert and workshop. Two more workshopsare featured in this festival: a Latin percussion clinic with Cubanborndummer Francisco Mela and a jazz improvisation clinic with19-year-old American saxophone prodigy, Grace Kelly. “One ofthe things that makes the Art of Jazz unique is the community webuild,” says AOJ president Bonnie Lester. “Bringing top artistssuch as Mela and Grace Kelly to stay throughout the festival andplay with local and international musicians allows us to create arelaxed, casual and welcoming atmosphere. We encourage audiencesand musicians to mix, mingle and learn from one another, deliveringwhat we hope will be a memorable experience for all the guests andfriends of the festival.”“Not a concert?
